Out of My Comfort Zone

There is a challenge at Stamp TV to make a Shabby Chic card.  It was definitely a challenge because I am not an artist and cannot think out of the box (or shabby).  But I did give it a try and would love to do another one - just not now.  In fact, this is probably my last post for maybe two weeks.  I will be without stamping supplies for about that long.. So Happy Memorial Day in advance.   Okay - on to the card.
The digital image is by Lineart.  The lace and two buttons are my mom's so they are antiques - just to make the shabby chic authentic ! LOL
