Hello crafty friends! I'm popping in today to share a project I made for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room #213 - 'Floral Fantasy'! We are looking for the colors from the inspiration photo + flowers and ribbon/lace ... easy peesy, right??!!??
I began with a base of lucky limeade cardstock onto which I layered some pretty patterned paper from Crate. Next I stamped a sentiment from the You Are The Most Wonderful set on the top left of the card - directly onto the vanilla, lace pattern paper. I added a paper doilie and a lovely bow tied using some pink chevron twill tape.
I adhered a couple of Cotton Candy iridescent sequins and some beautiful paper blooms - using a Green Apple Straw for the 'leaves'. Last, I stamped 'mother' onto a little tag using the You Are The Most Wonderful set again and tied it onto the nosegay of flowers using Cotton Candy Baker's Twine.
I made this card for my sweet mother-in-law ... it's her birthday this month. I hope she likes it!
Paper Sweeties is sponsoring the Tea Room challenge this week, so I hope you'll have some time this week to play along with our 'Floral Fantasy' challenge for a chance to win a shopping spree in the boutique!
