Lovely Hanglar Only - Challenge #2 - "Shabby"

Hello all you happy crafters out there!  Hope your week is going well and we're almost at mid-week so the weekend will soon be upon us!  I'm "convalescing" from a fall and a fractured bone so I'm hanging out in my craft room.  The second challenge at the Lovely Hanglar Only blog site just started and this time they are asking for something "shabby."  Well, this is the very first time I'm doing a "shabby" card and I don't even really know the meaning of it and when I saw some other cards, well, I thought my looked more "drabby" than shabby, but the main thing is I had fun working on something!  So, here it is, and I hope to improve on my "shabby" style cards.  Of course, the deep, dark DP, although pretty, didn't make it look to cheerful!  LOL! 

If you have any Hanglar & Stanglar stamps/images, join the fun!  Go check it out and see all the lovely creations by others.  I wish you all a wonderful, fun-filled week and weekend!  Stay safe, and happy crafting!
