Virginia's Shabby Chic Bingo Challenge

Let's get shabby, shall we?! I'm a huge fan of the "shabby chic" style, and our resident DT member Virginia is a shabby connoisseur. Her work and projects always feature the elements of shabbiness....love that! :) So I asked Virginia if she could create a shabby inspired challenge for us, and she came up with a fabulous one!
If you are not familiar with the elements of shabby chic then take a peek at these photos and it will give you an idea.

Yum...pastels, florals, lace, crackle paint, bling... as the one and only Elsie Flannigan says "Holy Cute"! ;-) So, Virginia also had the brilliant idea of creating a "Bingo Card of Shabbiness" for you to all choose your own elements for how you want to create your work. Pick a row, any row...and run with it.

I picked a row and then discovered I had managed to also incorporate 3 extra elements in it as well. So it's not as hard as you may initially think. Give it a go!
This is running from today through July 3rd. Please be sure to link up your work (with a link directly to your LO) in the comments, so I can find it and add it to the slide show!
And I think it's time for a prize for a random entrant...so let's just say it will be a Jenni Bowlin Prize pack...because she is the reigning queen of scrapping shabby deliciousness.
Have fun with this one!
Here are the DT examples!
