MFT Guest Designer Challenge

I admit, I groaned a little when I saw the theme for this month's MFT guest designer contest: Shabby Chic.   SOOOOO not my style!  I started thinking about what I could do, and since my MFT collection isn't very big I hoped I had something that would lend itself to this style.  It took me over 2 hours to make this as I really had no end product in mind when I started.
My first thought was to make a distressed background, so I repeatedly stamped the words, distressed the edges, crumpled it, and sponged the edges.  It kind of grew from there, and this is what resulted.  It's okay, but I don't plan on doing shabby chic again anytime soon, lol!  ALL the edges of EVERYTHING are sponged with crumb cake ink, including the cake. 

Thanks for stopping by!
