A Shabby Tea Room SFYTT



Finally getting to this month's Sketch For You To Try.  Always reminds me how quickly the month goes by!

I used this week's sketch to make a birthday card for my mom.  I combined it with this week's  Shabby Tea Room inspiration picture as I just love pink and green together and this K & Company paper by Brenda Walton is a perfect fit.

I had to roll around in all the Andrea Ewen Diva Dust I could find in order to get the where-with-all to make this card.  She is the queen of floral/shabby cards and though this doesn't come close to her gorgeous creations, it is a big stretch for me and I fairly happy with the outcome.  Hopefully my mom will be happy with it as well LOL!

Thanks for dropping by and have a fabulous weekend!

 

What's In It?
Stamps: Love Deepens (Verve)
Paper: Madeline (K & Company), Sage Shadow, Cream Linen, Mellow Moss, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink
Ink:  Black
Accessories:  Rolled Rose Die (MFT), Leaf Punch (Martha Stewart),  Lace, Half Pearls, Seam Binding, Button, Twine, Glue Dots, Dimensionals

Ooooh! Pink and green, you know I'm lovin' that! So soft and pretty! The ribbons and flowers are just incredible. I like the added touch of ribbon on the top corner, nice detail!

Another beautiful card. I love the lace on this one. I am so taken with it. I love lace because it reminds me of my sweet grandma. Great job Marisa.
