The Shabby Tea Room #133!

Hello sweeties and welcome to The Shabby Tea Room #133 - 'The White Challenge'!  This week Lenet is our creative host and she is challenging us to create a card or project inspired by this beautiful photo and to USE WHITE PLUS ONLY ONE ADDITIONAL COLOR (you may include additional neutrals such as cream, kraft, brown or black)!

For my project this week, I used white, cream, kraft, black and brown ... and my ONE additional color is orange!  I filled a white polka dotted kraft bag with a couple of yummy fall goodies and then tied a length of tea-stained hem tape around the top of the bag.  I attached a cute tag stamped using the Little Wishes and Too Cute To Spook stamp sets from Paper Sweeties and then tied it onto the bow with a rusty jingle bell and twill button twine.

I added a delicious glittered jack-o-lantern sticker - so sparkly and pretty!!  For the stem, I found a stick in my backyard and hot glued it onto the top of the pumpkin.  I adhered an organza flower, a pearl trinket pin and a couple of leaves made from cream canvas.  To finish my sweet treat fall bag, I added a couple scrap pieces of vintage lace trim, pearls and a white paper doile ... and then I stamped the 'Happy Halloween' sentiment using the Spooky Wishes stamp set from Paper Sweeties and machine sewed a zig-zag stitch along the bottom of the kraft bag.

A little bit of spooky ... and a lotta sweet!  This was so much fun to make ... I think I'll make a couple more to give to friends this fall season :)
