The Shabby Tea Room #29!

Oh my shabby goodness ... Clare is our host this week in the Tea Room and she has chosen this GORGEOUS photo as inspiration for us all to work from:

Our challenge is called "Pearls and Pastels" and we are to create a card or project inspired by the photo!

I took this picture very literally and not only used the colors in the photo, but I also created a 'jeweled bracelet' on my card!  This was so much fun to design ... I hit my treasure baskets and pulled out lots of pearls, rhinestones, buttons, flowers, beads and bobbles that looked like this breathtaking bracelet and set to work!

JustRite is our sponsor again in the Tea Room this week {love them!}!  I used both the Vintage Christmas stamp set and the Christmas Nested Sentiments!!  I also used the current #37 sketch challenge at the JR blog to create my card!

I die cut the large snowflake from chipboard, spray painted it white and then glittered it (yum!).  Many of you will remember that I used this exact same die and technique for my personal holiday card last year ... 50 glittered snowflakes -- doesn't get much better than that in 'Debbie land'!!!

A little stamping, a little sewing, some more glittering and lots of layers and texture.  So much FUN :)

Please hop on over to the Tea Room to be inspired by the other Shabby Girls' creations and visit their personal blogs too ... so much talent:

Debbie, this is scrumptious! The snowman is super cute and the colors are fabulous! However, your dimension button and stuff border had me "ooing" and "awing"! Awesome card! Thanks so much for playing FTTC!
