Shabby chic me thinks????

Good afternoon my crafty friends I hope you're all well and coping with the cold weather :o))))))))))))))
I want the sun back please!!!!
I have a card for you today,  I coloured the image over the weekend along with a few others as I didn't have chance to make any cards.So decided to put it together last night, finishing it off today (putting on the embellishments)
I struggled for a title for this post as not sure what to call the card usually something pops into my empty noggin but nope anyway here it is

Papers are of course all freebies mainly from Pixel scrapper they have been distressed and inked with varies brown DI's

the image is of course from the uber talented Saturated canary and she has been coloured with promarkers (not sure about the background now but well it's done so ...)
Colours used are

Soft Peach, sandstone, Blush (skin)
Antique pink (heart)
Ginger, terracotta, rosewood (hair)
Soft khaki, Khaki, pastel beige, caramel, cappuccino, firebrick (clothes & shoes)

I made the flower from I think, papermania flowers and stamens I brought back from States along with the grass bits at back. I attached these to a huge single chiffon bow then added some gems to bottom and top of card.

the sentiment was made up on pc and was also distressed and inked
and there you have it I will leave you with an arty view of card and some challenges I want to enter it into
thanks for popping by ATG TEXTURE ATG ATG
