The Shabby Tea Room #60!

Hello peeps and welcome to The Shabby Tea Room's #60 challenge ... I am your host this week and I named our challenge 'Sweet Dreams' and have chosen this beautiful photo for inspiration --

-- and this week's challenge is a COLOR challenge ... please use BLUE, WHITE (or CREAM) and a NEUTRAL (kraft, brown, black, tan) in your designs. 

And here is my card using Birdies Nest from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps, our wonderful sponsor in the Tea Room this week!

I added sweet little bits and bobs of treasures ... some pearls, vintage lace trim, glitter, embossed music notes, machine sewing and a vintage postal image and papers.

Please be sure to visit the Shabby Girls individual blogs to see what they have created for your inspiration this week and then hop on over to the Tea Room to join in on this pretty color palette this week!
