The Shabby Tea Room #35!

This week at The Shabby Tea Room, we are inspired by this lovely photo ...

... and our host, Clare, is asking us to create a card or project using the colors, theme or both!  I used both -

Our sponsor in the Tea Room this week is My Time Made Easy, and Lauren provided the DT with this adorable butterfly template called 'All a Flutter' and some yummy digital papers and images to design with!

I used Tea Parlor Fortune Teller's Fallen Leaf digital papers from MTME.  The handmade trinket pin is from June at Lina Beas, the heart stamped on the metal tag is from the You've Got Mail stamp set, a snippet of vintage lace, some berries, a butterfly cut with my Cricut and some Lilac Lace Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop to complete the nose-gay in the middle of the butterfly!  I filled the gift with Raspberry Chocolate hot cocoa and praline cookies!!

On the gift card, I used the Trendy Tags #3 cut file, Just For You Sentiments and Just For You stamp sets, all from the MTME shop!  The card was cut using my Cricut and the Sentimentals cartridge.  The small butterfly is actually cut out and I put some more Tea Parlor digi paper behind the cut out to peek through!

One of my very good friends, Mary, is having her birthday next week and her favorite color is purple, so this {sweet} little handmade from the heart gift set will be going to her ... made with love :)

Please visit the My Time Made Easy to see all the wonderful templates, stamp sets, cut files and digital papers and images that Lauren has to offer - such wonderful goodies to design with!!!
