The Shabby Tea Room #70!

Hello everyone and welcome to this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room!  Charlene is our host this week for our 'Flower Power' challenge and has chosen this lovely photo for inspiration ...

... and asks that we create a card or project using the colors in the photo (pinks, reds, neutrals) and FLOWERS!

Our sponsor in the Tea Room this week is Stitchy Bear Stamps who generously provided some beautiful images and papers to the teamies -- I got to work with the 'Tea Time' digital image -- such pretty little stacked tea cups ... YUM!

After I printed off the image, I spritzed it with some Vintage Cream glimmer Mist and then dripped some tea onto the edges to age the sides of the paper.  It's so much prettier IRL!  The image is backed on a piece of vintage newsprint paper, I added a sweet tea party ticket and some lovely floral papers I got from Etsy and some pretty pink satin flowers, red baker's twine and satin ribbon, white paper doilie and a sweet pink floral trinket pin!
Please be sure to check out what the other Shabby Girls have made for inspiration this week:

Charlene Cundy - Expresstions of Me!

Danielle Greenwood - Au Clair de La Lune

Melissa Bove - Creating From the Heart

Pattie Goldman - The Pampered Paper Patch

Sheri Holt - My Sheri Cards

... and then hop on over to the Tea Room to give our fun challenge a try!

Thanks for peeking in today!
