Shabby Chic flowers

The past few weeks I've taken an interest in Shabby Chic, especially flowers.
I've been watching tutorials and purchased some lace and chipboard/plywood laser cuts (at this great store:

I've already made a few cards and some lace flowers like this one.

I adore the pink and grey lace. The ornament in the middle I also made using beads and other bits and pieces I had in my stash.
The big flower on my next card I also made from trims of lace.

The paper on this card I had in my stash for many years, I think it's from Tilda. It's gorgeous paper.
The frame is from Wycinanka. I glued the two pieces together and painted it with white acryl paint mixed with chalk to get the right color. I made the frame look old bij adding brown chalk and silver ink.

The sentiment is from a lily of the valley stamp set from Inspired by stamping.
The big flower is made from white and pink lace and a in the middle a fabric rose. The small silver roses are from metal, so this card combines shabby chic with modern. I thought "why not?"

Finally I've added some pearls and a piece of silver lace.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:
