Lacy Sunshine Shabby Chic Birthday

This fortnight the challenge at LACY SUNSHINE CHALLENGE is steam punk or shabby chic.  I decided to go with Shabby Chic as it is closer to my normal style than steam punk which just scares the daylights out of me ;)

I have used Elanor's Heart Balloons image which I printed on Gina K luxury cardstock and coloured my image with copic markers,

I added some Stampedous Shabby Pink embossing powder around the edges of the image and also to the background papers.  I used some heidi swapp sprays liberally but not spraying them just flicking the end of the sprayer to make droplets.
I have also used a doily and Fairytale Sequin Mix from SpiegelMom Scrap Shop (Remeber to use the code Louise10 for a discount) 
I sprayed the doily with the sprays, this time actually spraying, to make it gorgeous and shabby looking then I cut it in half so I could use it in two places on the card.
I then added some flowers from Wild Orchid and used the gold spray to paint the edges.

Thanks so much for joining me today :)
