The Shabby Tea Room #48!

Welcome to this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room -- #48 brings Melissa as our fabby host and she has supplied this scrumptious picture as inspiration for us all ...


... and asks us to create a card or project using hearts along with additional inspiration from this yummy picture!  Are you inspired by the doilie, ribbons, polka dots, pink, green, brown & neutral colors, the lace, flowers ... OH MY!  I was inspired by it ALL!


As you can see, I put a little of everything from the inspiration photo in my design ... including lots of glitter and bling :)

Our sponsor in the Tea Room this week is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and I choose to work with Hearts & Flowers image.  I printed the image, cut it out and colored in the petals and leaves.  I added glitter to all elements and then popped the entire image up from my card base using dimensionals.  A pink glittered piece of chipboard works wonderfully for the flower 'pot' -- embellished with a snipett of white lace and some chocolate candy dots!  The large flower is adorned with a hot pink rolled felt flower with a candy dot center!

The paper doilie was spritzed with Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist, glittered and adhered to the card.  Some yummy Kraft twill tape works perfectly for the bow and the sentiment is printed using a free download available now at Papertrey Ink!  I punched the sentiment out and then adhered it to another scallop punch using my sewing machine.  Some inking of edges with Twill paint, sewing and more candy dots complete my shabby little spring-y card today!
