Digital Tuesday Challenge

I made this card for the Digital Tuesday Challenge, the theme this week is 'shabby chic', this is a new thing for me ! I have no idea if this looks OK or just completely 'wrong' so I really would appreciate constructive criticism
I used a digital download from the Digital Stamp Oasis
, this one is called 'Susie watering flowers'
I used a base card of light brown which I sprayed with glimmer mist in orange and green, I sponged up the excess ink and dabbed it around the torn edge of the image. I inked a sunflower stamp with brown ink and stamped it onto parchment paper and inked areas of that and a torn parchment music score too.
The flower is a hero arts one and I distressed a SU button with alcohol ink and then shimmered it with perfect pearls and tied a ribbon through it.
The Susie image is 3D'd to add even more dimension :-)
