Lets Get Shabby October Contest

I loved the challenge this month (every month really but haven't had much time to do challenges) over at Lets Get Shabby this month. The first part was photos of two kitchens to be inspired by - I chose Kitchen two as thought of what to do first.
Here is the photo:
The photo inspired me to have some distressed chipboard(from the table in the kitchen), Big rose and floral fabric (from the tea towel and apron), a doily(due to the napkin holder), pink and white striped paper (from the tea towel) and touches of green.

The second part was to have the following ingredients:

One piece of fabric - Mine is behind the photo
Two die cut shapes -I chose butterfly and a MME diecut with roses and leaves on it which is under the large rose
Three colours from your chosen kitchen. (These will need to be your dominant colours) - my main colours are red, pink and white

Here is my layout:
