Recycled shabby and shiny

(This may not have the same appearance on the screen as IRL.)  Actually, what I see on the screen may look better!  Well, not everything...  The stripes at the bottom are pieces from an old Christmas card - dark burgundy and gold.  The top is a bit from a metallic gold gift bag, with the Snowflake embossing.  IRL it is much too shiny for my taste, and I sponged with cream color chalk to tone it down - not really showing here.  I also sponged (chalk) the edges of the image - again, much smoother looking IRL.  I roughed the edges to add to the shabby look.  I colored the Stampendous image with Prismas.  As I have mentioned previously I am having difficulty coloring this - still waiting for suggestions!
