When I saw the inspiration photo, the colors of pink, yellow, orange, black and silver jumped out at me.  I also was inspired by the mixy-matchy ribbons in different sizes and lengths.  I added a snipett of white crochet lace, Washi tape, sequins and a couple stickers to complete my whimsical design!

Bloom where you are planted – TSTR #189

Photo Inspiration #189Hello crafty friends!  Welcome to my blog today!  I'm here to share a little something I cooked up for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room #189 - 'Fall Florals'.  We are asked to be inspired by this lovely photo and include fall flowers on our project!

Debbie TSTR #189 (2)Creations by AR is our wonderful host this week in the Tea Room and I got to create with Adela's beautiful Garden Can Set - swoon!  I cut the watering can out of pretty patterned paper and assembled.  Then I had fun decoration the can with a white paper doilie, pretty paper flowers in yummy autumn colors and a little rhinestone and pearl BLING!

Debbie TSTR #189 (3)I stuffed the inside of the can with Spanish moss I picked on vacation down in Florida a while back, and then cut the coordinating seed packet from the set out of some more patterned paper.  I decorated the seed packet with another flower and doilie and then wrapped a length of Primrose Cookie Dough seam binding around the seed packet and tied it into a pretty bow.  Next, I stamped a pretty frame and sentiment to adhere to the middle of the seed packet using the Smile and Make Today Beautiful stamp sets from Paper Sweeties!

Debbie TSTR #189 (1)You won't want to miss a single peek of the amazing inspiration by the rest of the teamies over in the Tea Room, so hop on over for a little look!  I hope you're inspired to create something fun with fall flowers this week for a chance to win an amazing prize package from Creations by AR!
