Getting Shabby and Chic for MDUC #72

This is my second post of the day.... if you are looking for my Tickled Pink Stamps "Lil Christmas" blog hop post... click HERE.
Good morning and Happy Sunday to you all! We have another exciting challenge for you over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges.... it is Shabby Chic.
OMGoodness - I have to say... I did struggle a tad with this theme. I am not really used to making Shabby Chic cards so I went in search for some inspiration on the net, gotta love google images! I ended up deciding to use my Distress crackle paint and some sponging to age all my paper and go with a blue, silver and white theme.

The new Cricut got fired up with SCAL and some cut files I'd downloaded and I cut out a circle card with a hole in the middle for some acetate. I started cutting out the leaves with the cuttlebug but decided it was all taking too long (I did need 40 of them afterall) so again, back to the Cricut and I used that to cut the leaves out. I then sponged all of the leaves with blue ink and stamped a snowflake all over them with silver ink. I used my Magnolia Doo Hickey dies "Wings" and "Swirl" and my small Fiskars punches for the hearts and stars and my MS punch for the snowflakes. Then to assemble! I decorated the inside of the card with Magnolia paper from the Fairytale collection. Everything was then generously stickled and a wire edges ribbon, crystal stems and flowers added. The white star on the bow is from my local Spotlight and when I saw it this week I had to have it.

So.. what do you think? Shabby Chic?
