A Touch of Shabby Chic

Afternoon all, I made this 8x8 decoupaged card for my best friend's birthday, I do hope she'll like it.
She's one of those wonderful people you very rarely find, she and her hubby love nothing better than having friends round for dinner or little drink evenings, she's a fabulous hostess, a true rock and I treasure her as my friend for these and a thousand other reasons.
I usually make her a funny card with a cheeky sentiment, but I hate to be predictable so thought I'd do something different this year.
She has a couple of lovely pictures in her kitchen which are very similar to this, so I know the image will be her taste (not sure about the lace paper though). Both the decoupage and paper are from Joanna Sheen's store.

I've had a wonderful few weeks, firstly my youngest son came to visit for a long weekend and brought his girlfriend. It was the first time we'd met her and she's simply lovely so we had a fabulous time with them.
They went home on the Sunday, then on the Monday my eldest son phoned to say he was coming on Tuesday to stay for 10 days. He went home yesterday so I'm now trying to get back to normal again.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Girls Challenges - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly Challenges - Pretty Pastels
Fab 'n' Funky Challenges - Photo Inspiration
