Let's get shabby #20

Our inspiration at Let's get shabby this time was to
"choose a piece of shabbychic bone china/porcelain dinnerware, 
 for example : a teacup, dinner plate, teapot etc
It could be your own, or a photo off the internet and be inspired to recreate the pattern/image of that piece into your own artwork with a LO, card, otp etc. "
Here is my inspiration piece found on Pinterest
It so reminds me of my mother and times gone by.
 I love the gold filigree work on the pink.
I found this patterned paper by Kaisercraft "Sweet Nothings" range.
It was a very close match. I've chosen to make a card.
I put the white paper through the cuttlebug using a script embosser, then lightly inked it in gold.
I used layers to replicate the stack of saucers in the photo.
The background card is quite a nice pink, but comes up looking washed out on my scanner.
