Shabby Chic card

Taken from the Moxie Fab World blog:

"What makes a card shabby chic? Well, shabby chic is a style characterized by layering. It is soft, utilizing ribbon, lace, and techniques such as inking and distressing. The final product looks comfortable, weathered, and worn."

And this was my attempt. The edges have been inked, vintage book print included, and the old button threaded. I hope you like it. I'm channeling Betsy Veldman's 'Bright but Shabby' style. She is such an inspiration to me!
