The Shabby Tea Room #103!

 Hello friends and welcome to The Shabby Tea Room challenge #103 - 'Shabby Shutters'!  This week Fran is our fabby shabby host and she has chosen this beautiful photo for inspiration ...

 ... and Fran asks that we create a card or project inspired by the photo and USE NAVY and NEUTRALS PLUS A DISTRESSED ELEMENT!  

 The Tea Room sponsor this week is Little Darlings Rubber Stamps and I got to design with their 'Going For a Ride' digital stamp!  My distressed elements are a piece of cardboard packaging that I painted with cream paint and the navy blue cardstock that I inked along the edges.  Another 'distressed' element is the Vintage Winter White and Cake Crumbs Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop that I hand tea-stained to create a time-worn look! 

Please be sure to check out the awesome inspiration from the rest of the teamies ...
