Elisabeth Bell's World April Challenge - Shabby Chic/Distressing!!

Wow, can you believe it's nearly April. I can't. It means I'm going to be another year older but I don't really mind!! Anyway, we're not here to talk about my age we're here to welcome a new challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World..  This month we are wanting to see your Shabby Chic/Distressing creations using mainly white using any Elisabeth Bell image from any of the wonderful shops she designs for or from her digital store where you will find so many adorable images...
Now I'm not too sure if I covered the Shabby Chic but I definitely went over board with the distressing on my card!! :) And my card stock was white  but because I went overboard with the distressing you can't really tell!! LOL!!
Anyway, you probably just want to see my card so here it is!
This Elisabeth Bell image is from Whiff of Joy from a spring kit a couple of years ago!! I coloured her in with Tria markers and what appears to be yellow is some kindyglitz!! I used Walnut Stain Distress ink to ink around all the edges and to stamp the script image which is a stamp from Kaszazz. I then just added my usual embellishments!! Shabby Chic or Not.. you be the judge!!

Head on over the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog to check out what other gorgeous creations the DT have for you then join in the fun!!!! You won't be disappointed!!
