Shabby Chic a la Tim : Compendium Challenge #4

Linda of Studio L3 has chosen "Shabby Chic" for the challenge technique from Tim's "Compendium of Curiosities."  My 5 1/2 inch square card is all Tim...except for the tiny Rubber Soul sentiment.  I cut grungeboard with  Tim's Alterations "Tattered Florals."  I had to add some white because the Stream paint didn't result in a very distressed look.  The text on the flowers is Tim's 'imagination' stamp for Stampers Anonymous.  The card background is from that fabulous paper pack of Tim's--Vintage Shabby--and was edged with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
