Shabby Chic

It's my turn to set the challenge for you this week and i have gone with Shabby Chic, .
Before i get down to that we at CD Sunday received the very sad news that our former friend and team mate Wendy had pass away, I am sure so many of you will remember Wendy, better know in blog land as Purple Crazy, our heart felt condolences are sent to her family and friends.
Jocelyn will be picking her top 3 and it will be listed on our next challenge.
For my project this fortnight i have used an 8 x 8 canvas and the CD used is a Crafters Companion Flower Fairy Friends.
I started by spraying the canvas with a copper shimmer mist before i put on the back paper from the CD. 
The rest of the recipe are as follows
Image from Cd,  rose blossom,  paper roses,  wooden embellishments,  hessian ,  metal corners,  die cuts ,  a large Docrafts big bloomer ,  fabric button and gilding wax.
This challenge runs for two weeks and i look forward to seeing what you make, please remember to use something from a CD no matter how small to ensure you are eligible for ant prize that may be on offer.
