A shabby little card...

Good morning everyone.  I am sharing this project over at Country View Crafts today where there is a full step by step. Do pop over and take a peek!

I loved making this - a new style for me - a year ago I could never have imagined me making flowers ( bit of a tomboy really!). I was inspired by the fabulous Christmas card I received off Pamellia at My Little Craft Things.  This is the card I received - do visit her site if you haven't been there - her work is beyond stunning.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
