DT Post for LEJ Designs: Shabby Chic

Good morning all - and welcome to Annie - my newest follower!  This morning I've got two posts for all you - the first is my DT post for LEJ Designs where there is a new challenge starting todaylejdesignschallengeblog
There are two prizes this week. First prize winner will recieve their choice of three LEJ Design Digis - look here - Lindsay's designs are fab - and there's an ever increasing catalogue to choose from.

The second prize winner will win a £10 voucher for the Joanna Sheen online site.

So the theme of today's challenge? Well its shabby chic and here's my card:

I made this for my crafty friend Anne ( whom I met at one of Hels Sheridan's workshops - anyway - she very kindly sent me some sheets of the glassine paper to play with and these flowers are the first play I had with them. So the card was a thankyou! You should check out her blog if you don't already go there - its fab!!!!
Anyway - the image was printed onto neenah crest card and coloured with promarkers - I've used Tim Holtz papers and DI tea dye. I've used several spellbinders dies including the bitty blossoms and the single large flower and I think that's about it!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
