Anything Goes at Fashionable Stamping

Hi folks, today see the start of a new Challenge over at Fashionable Stamping and it's one you all like 'Anything Goes'  so as long as you use real stamps and your stamping is the main focal point of your project please join us as we have Flonzcraft as our sponsor and they are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
For my card I have used Artistic Outpost 'Paris Exposition'  for my main image, coloured with Distress inks
I've gone for a very shabby look with this card - I used Picket Fence stain on the DP before Stencilling with embossing paste.  A torn page from a french novel, lace and muslin under the layered image. My flowers are a Joy craft die and inked with Milled lavender and Dusty concord with seam binding stained to match.
  I am entering this at:
    That Craft Place -  Shabby/Chic
    Artistic Outpost - Show us Your Art - Anything Goes

Just a quick post from me,  last couple of things to pack away before I loose the kitchen tomorrow, so it's 2 weeks of no kitchen duties - hoping to get some crafting time in while the builder is busy, fingers crossed.
Enjoy your Sunday.

I love the lilac colour choice and the beautiful shading you've achieved around the tower Avril.. The flowers and lace are the perfect finishing touch too.
