The Shabby Tea Room #87!

 Hello sweet friends and welcome to The Shabby Tea Room's 87th challenge - 'A Shabby Thanksgiving'!  This week Char is our lovely host and she has chosen this beautiful photo for inspiration ...

 ... and Char asks that we create a card or project showing 'THANKS' and using BROWN, YELLOW, BLUE and NEUTRALS!

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps is our sponsor this week and I got to design with their Ornate Frame image.  After I printed it, I cut it out with scissors (the inside of the frame too), glittered it and then adhered it over my stamped image with dimensionals to create dimension.  The sentiment and stamped frames are from Crafty Secrets - Vintage Labels and Bonjour Merci stamp sets.

The sweet tag was stamped using another image from the Bonjour Merci set and the bottom of the card was stamped using the Sew Special and Artsy Banner stamp sets.   The pretty gardenia bloom is from The Ribbon Reel Shop.  All patterned papers are from SU! and the Lacey Blueberry shabby vintage seam binding is from my Etsy Shop

I love the way this card turned out ... love the pop of blue in the paper ruffle and bow!  The day I made this, I popped it in an envie and mailed it off to a stampy friend to let her know how 'thankful' I am for her friendship and kindness!  'Tis the season to give thanks to those we love!!!
