The Shabby Tea Room #73!

 This week's theme at The Shabby Tea Room is called Mix & Match and Danielle is our #73 host!   Danielle has chosen this beautiful picture for inspiration this week ...

 ... and asks that we create a card or project with {at least} THREE DIFFERENT  PATTERNED PAPERS - manufactured or handmade!  How FUN :)  

For my card, I used some pretty polka dotted paper from Doodlebug Designs along with some lovely patterns from the Sunkissed Digital Pack available from Sugarplum Paperie at The Digichick Shop. The clouds were cut with my Cricut using the On Cloud 9 Pretty Cut File from My Time Made Easy!

Isn't that hot pink damask paper gorgeous??  Chi Chi Memories is the sponsor in the Tea Room this week and I got to design with their 'Splash of Fun' digital image ... just too cute!!  I coordinated the colors to the palette in the inspiration photo -- lots of vibrant, cheery colors ... and a bit of glitter too!

One of my favorite dream destinations is the beach ... and my favorite beaches are Myrtle Beach in SC and any beach in HI - but especially Waikiki in Oahu!!!  This fun card reminds me of both!
