Shabby Chic - Rainbow Lady's Challenge

It's Shabby Chic at Rainbow Lady's this week, now not one of my fav themes, but you have to stretch yourself  from time to time, not sure if I've stretched quite enough right now, probably should have used some faded papers too, but as I don't have any printed and the printer is packed away, I have to manage this afternoon with what I have already.  

I've been going to use this image (which I printed ages ago) for while now, so this challenge is just right for it, love those old shabby shutters, door and the steps on it. just the sort of place I always imagined having, but am so glad I don't now, I would never be able to get indoors, imagine getting a wheelchair up those steps !!
The image is from Ooh-La-La Creations CD,  Watercolour Memories - French Steps.  I do love this CD, so many lovely scenes and images. Not sure where the papers are from they were in my scraps box, I used a Nestie for the oval and a Marianne Creations die for the flourish, base card is Centura Pearl and the mirri is Kanban Linen Effect. Hope you like it.
