My attempt at vintage/shabby chic

This was my first attempt at making a vintage-y tag. At the time I made it I thought it turned out pretty good. Now ... not sure I'm liking it very much. It needs to be a little more dimensional, especially the lace at the bottom. I didn't have gathered lace at the time so I just laid it flat without thinking that I could've stitched it to make gathers. Oh well - not too bad for my first try. 

These are some flowers I made for a monthly swap I'm hosting with some FB friends. I like to call them shabby chic, but not exactly sure they fall in that category.  What do you think?
