Is that shabby chic?

J'ai essayé de faire une carte dans le style shabby-chic. Rose faite à la main, napperons, couture, bords usés... mais j'ai fait du plus moderne en remplaçant les indispensables perles du style shabby par des gemmes, et en utilisant du bolduc! J'aime bien le résultat, maintenant à vous de me dire si cette carte peut être considérée comme shabby-chic!
J'ai créé la rose pour cette carte en utilisant le fichier de découpe de Bird's cards (fleur n°6) sur du papier blanc, puis en colorant à l'encre Stampin'Up et en formant les pétales à l'aide d'une pince fine.
Ceci est l'image créée par "auto-awesome" de Google+ avec les photos que j'avais faites de ma carte. Le fond et le napperon se voient beaucoup mieux, par contre ma rose n'est pas aussi foncée que ça dans la vraie vie!
This is the auto-awesome result from Google+. You can see the background paper and the doily much better. However, my handmade rose is not as dark as this IRL!
I tried to make a shabby chic card. I used the usual ingredients for this style: roses, doilies,sewing, distressed edges for the paper... but I think I created a more modern than intended card by using rhinestones instead of pearls and some gift ribbon as an accent... Well, anyway, I quite like it, now you can tell me if you think it qualifies for the shabby chic style!
The rose is created using a cutting file from Bird's cards (flower 6). I cut all the parts in white cardstock, then used some Stampin'Up ink to color it. I used tweezers to shape the petals.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges: Crafty Girls (anything goes), Art Impressions (use a doily), Charisma Cardz (anything goes), Creative Knockouts (sew it up: I used both machine stitching on the edges of the card and hand stitching for the zigzag on the blue paper), Crafty Catz (flowers), Wags 'n Whiskers (anything goes), Simon Says Stamp (start from scratch : that flower was only white cardstock when I begun!).
