The Shabby Tea Room #50 - part one!

Welcome friends!  Today I have a card to share with you that I made for The Shabby Tea Room's 50th challenge - buttons and bows!  How fun is that?  Pattie is our host this week and I just {adore} the theme she chose ... so girl-y ... so fun!


I began with the Dress Form card file supplied by our sponsor and some patterned papers from Making Memories and Stampin' Up! in violet, gray and vanilla.  I paper pieced the bodice to the skirt, added some gray Prima lace on the bottom of the skirt and a few light pink satin roses. I just am in {love} with that gorgeous damask pattern on the skirt!!


At the waist, I layered some pink tulle ribbon from Webster's paired with some pink satin trim with glass beads!  I tied a beautiful vanilla taffeta sash around the waist and layered a nosegay of a pink satin rose and violet & lavender berries!  The bodice is decorated with a tiny pink pearl necklace with a Webster's sparkler button hanging from it as the pendant!


So vintage with all the found treasures from my craft room baskets!  So sweet!





Our sponsor this week in the Tea Room is The Cutting Cafe'!
