Hopeful-ly Shabby

I love the shabby chic style but it's not one that comes easily to me and I always tend to go over the top with my attempts. This is one of those times! I got carried away with the frantage on this one and whilst I still like it, I do wonder if it's too glittery to be shabby chic now! Anyhow, this card is for Whimsy Stamps Challenge #64 to do a shabby chic/vintage card, Crafty Little Fairies Challenge and Live and Love Crafts Challenge #16 both to use pink in honour of Breast Cancer Month.

And here's my gorgeous Hopeful - love this little girl!
