What a challenge, literally

Here's my card for the Simply Create and Shabby Tea Room challenges. Gorgeous colours to play with, but had a bit of trouble with my mojo with this one for some reason. Amazing how you start with one idea and end up with something completely different! For the flowers, I die cut and then scrunched up and inked with Colorbox Ice Blue chalk ink. Anyways, I am quite happy with it now :)
