The Shabby Tea Room #77!

 Welcome sweet friends to The Shabby Tea Room's 77th challenge - 'Birthstones'!  Pattie is our host this week and she has chosen this fun photo for inspiration ...  

... and asks that we create a card or project using the color of our birthstone!  My birthday was last week - August 18th - and my birthstone is Peridot!

The closest I could come in my stash of papers and goodies was Certainly Celery so I used some cardstock for the base of my card and a few sparkly baubles to make my card pop!!

Sometimes the Peridot gemstone can look a bit more yellow than green, so I used this piece of patterned paper from Webster's Pages with the sweet dress form and skirt in a pale yellow.  A bit of pink and black to compliment the design on my card, and some shimmery silver accents for a bit more bling!!

Our sponsor in the Tea Room this week is Pink Persimmon and I got to design with their 'Vintage Greetings' and 'You're a Jewel' stamp sets ... perfect for this challenge!!  Pink Persimmon is offering the Tea Room winner a $40 gift certificate to the shop this week - WOW!

Please take a little peek-sie over at the other Shabby Girls' blogs to see what their birthstones are and what they were inspired to create for this week's Tea Room challenge:

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 don't forget, the deadline to apply for our current DESIGN TEAM CALL is this Sunday, September 4th at 11:59 pm.  The Shabby Girls look forward to seeing all of your beautiful creations!!

Thanks for peeking in today ... have a wonderful stampy day!
