Shabby/Vintage Card Attempt

TGIF! I'm so glad it's Friday. Looking forward to a nice weekend. K.I.S.A and I are headed up to our cabin for a nice weekend of floating around on the boat and maybe a bonfire tomorrow night. The weather is supposed to be great. Tonight we will be glued to the Hockey game.

Here is my first attempt at a Shabby/Vintage style card. I love the look of shabby/vintage, but am just never quite sure how to achieve it. Take a look at my card and tell me what you think you would change on it. Does it have the look of the shabby/vintage style?
I can't wait to hear your input. Thanks for taking a peek and have a fabulous weekend!

I think it definitely looks vintage and shabby chic! I love that look too (especially what Melissa Phillips can do), but I feel I can never really recreate the look. Great job!

I would say you definitely achieved shabby vintage, the lace, the flower, the ornate corner piece . . . very nice.
