The CD Sunday Challenge - Shabby Chic

I always think of lace when I think of shabby chic so that is my theme. The lacey look paper is from MCS Tattered Lace. I used it to cover a card balnk and pleated it to form a band round the middle. As I am into my Martha Stewart punches at the minute I added two bands using the shells/fan punch. I added a ribbon from Anna Griffin and some pearlescent gems and flower.
Does anyone else have days when cards just do not go as intended? I think this is plan Z after so many changes on route as bits went wrong. I did like how the finished card turned out eventually though. Hope you do too.
Thank you for taking a look. all your comments are much appreciated.
