Shabby pink and white

I have seen so many "shabby chic" cards that I like a lot - and want to practice my version of the style .  I tore the edges of the K&Co paper - actually, I had some scraps that I pieced.  I used my snowflake EF (available at Joan's Gardens) to bind it together.  In retrospect I should have done this before I adhered the lattice strip - I do think it detracts from the trellis shape.  Oh well... next time!  The half circle is from Spellbinders Majestic Elements - sponged with pink chalk, as is the sentiment.  I used a floral sticker mounted on a sponged Labels One layer.  The button like flowers are from a bunch of SandyLion embellishments I got at a store closing.
