Shabby and Chic Tilda

This is my second post today, thought it was time to do another Tilda card seems ages since my last one.  I did wonder if I pushing my luck as the light today is dreadful. I decided to follow  Donalda's Sketch over at Just Magnolia and tried to create a shabby chic look for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. I'm not sure if I've managed to create the shabby look as I'm not very good at distressing paper, I either don't do enough or I end up over doing it.  In fact the more I look at this picture I'm beginning to wonder if it looked better under the dank dark light it which I created it lol. If you are wondering how I managed to take the picture on a dull day like today, I do have a makeshift type of light tent, which makes it possible to take photographs and it seems to work.
The stamp is one of the Magnolia range which I bought at the NEC along with a few others but I'm not counting  it's too scary, coloured with Promarkers.   The background paper is from a pad called Fairy Flora from Prima Marketing. Various other papers for the scrolls etc and flowers and I've created the faux stitching with a needle tool and pen, as I'm too lazy to bring out my sewing machine.
Hope you like and thank you for stopping by
