Gratitude – TSTR #208

Hello sweeties and welcome to The Shabby Tea Room #208 – ‘Pretty Polka Dots‘!  This week we are asked to create a card or project inspired by this adorable photo and include POLKA DOTS … yum!

Photo Inspiration #208

I picked up a few adorable things at the recent Stamp Scrap Art Tour show in Columbia, SC that I attended with Paper Sweeties, and I couldn’t wait to give my new goodies a try!  This sweet box was a kit — easy peesy, cut, fold, glue — done!  I used a variety of goodies from the Paper Sweeties boutique to embellish my sweet treat box …

I had fun decorating my box!  I added a pretty bow using Robin Egg and Bubblegum seam binding.  Next I stamped the label and sentiment using the Beautiful stamp set — one of my all-time favs!  Finally I created the coordinating flower from the kit and added a Robin Egg Paper Straw for the flower stem and some Robin Egg Iridescent Sequins to add a bit of BLING and SPARKLE!

    You art is so inspiring to me (and many other I suspect). The seam binding colors are so vibrant and the sequins in the flower draw the eye quite sweetly. Love it all. Thank you for sharing this wonderful art with us at Word Art Wednesday today. Blessings, Carole DT
