Shabby Chic

I'm entering this card into the Creative Card Crew challenge for shabby chic/vintage

Also the As You Like It challenge which is for your favourite colour combo and why.  I love blue and white together, I don't think that any other combo could beat this for freshness

 And Our Daily Bread Designs with a photo inspiraton

The Pink Elephant #252  Anything goes

Top Tip Tuesday which is a monochrome challenge

All the papers, and the paper ribbon, were computer generated from NitWit Cottage Charms collection. I edged the background papers with a Tim Holt Distress Ink pad.  The Happy Birthday die was a freebie with Simply Cards and Papercraft mounted on 3D foam
