The Shabby Tea Room #50 - part three!!!

The cutting files from The Cutting Cafe' were just too cute to pass up, so I designed projects with all THREE files that were provided to the design team this week for The Shabby Tea Room :)

Here is used the Flower Pot cutting file for the base of the card along with one of the stamped sentiments from the file!  I paper pieced the flower pot with two different patterned papers from SU!'s Springtime Vintage collection - the base has a delicious Kraft background with the sweetest flowers and polka dots.  I added half of a paper doilie, some turquoise pom-pom trim, a button with turquoise baker's twine, a turquoise trinket pin, tiny clothes pin and some Cake Crumbs (Kraft) Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop!  The sentiment tag is inked with Kraft paint for a time-worn look!

I planted lots of bits and blooms into the pot!!!  I used two different kinds of paper flowers spritzed with Black Cherry Glimmer Mist to give them a soft lilac color.  The butterfly was white and that was spritzed with the same glimmer mist to add some pretty color!  Turquoise paper flower centers from Prima and Turquoise glittered leaves from American Crafts!

This shaped card was just TOO MUCH FUN to design!  I'll be giving this to a very good friend of mine to let her know just how much I appreciate her friendship ... love me my girlfriends :)
