New Challenge at ABNH...Nuevo reto en ABNH

It's time for a new challenge at A Blog Named Hero, and as always it's sponsored by the amazing Simon Says Stamp
This time the challenge is about Shabby Chic or Vintage cards:

Es hora de un nuevo reto en A Blog Named Hero, y como siempre esta promocionado por la tienda online Simon Says Stamp!
Esta vez el reto consiste en hace una tarjeta o proyecto utilizando el estilo Shabby Chic o Vintage:
Here is my card for the challenge:

Aqui esta mi tarjeta para el reto:
I have to say that this was a really difficult challenge for me. Shabby Chic is not my style (at all), but I'm happy with how this card turned out.
For me Shabby Chic is soft distressed colors, lace, ribbons and layers. I didn't go crazy, but I added a little bit of everything.
For the background, I stamped the "Old Letter Writing" from Hero Arts using Antique Linen distress ink, and then I went over the entire piece of paper with the same ink and the ink applicator. 
The ribbon, the lace and the button I had them on my stash, and I think they were my mom's, from years and years ago.
For the flower image, I just wanted to color and pop the 3 little flowers, and I added foam dimensionals, so it doesn't flatten in the mail. Here is a close up:

Tengo que decir que este reto ha sido super dificil para mi. Shabby Chic no es mi estilo (para nada), pero estoy contenta con como ha quedado la tarjeta.
Para mi, el estilo Shabby Chic es colores suaves envejecidos, encaje, lazos y capas (dimension en la tarjeta). No me volvi loca, pero añadi un poquito de todo.
Para crear el fondo, estampe el sello "Old Letter Writing" de Hero Arts utilizando la tinta distress Antique Linen, y despues cubri el panel entero con la misma tinta utilizando el aplicador de esponja.
El lazo, el encaje y el boton los tenia en mi caja de costura, y creo que eran de mi madre, de hace muuuchos años.
Para la imagen de la flor, solo queria colorear y dar dimension a las 3 pequeñas flores, asi que las pegue con dimensionales, para asi evitar que se "aplastaran" al mandarla por correo. Aqui puedes verlo mejor:
