The Shabby Tea Room #84!

 Hi friends and welcome to The Shabby Tea Room challenge #84!  This week Cindy is our lovely host and she has given our challenge the title of 'Pumpkin Garden' and chosen this gorgeous photo for inspiration ... 

... and Cindy asks that we create a card or project inspired by the colors in the above photo and used at least one dry embossed element!
I LOVE embossing on paper, so this challenge was a fun one for me :)

Our sponsor in the Tea Room this week is Classy Cards 'n Such and Beverly, the owner, generously provided each of the Shabby Girls with various items from her shop to create with this week.  I chose to work with Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three -- a beautiful set of dies!  

I hand cut a pumpkin shape, embossed it with SU!'s Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and then inked it with some cream paint to create a time-worn look.  The addition of some newsprint ruffled paper, polka dotted grosgrain ribbon, candy dots, a trinket pin, tiny tag, baker's twine, twig from my yard for a stem, vintage trim, paper flower, button, pretty patterned paper and Vintage Winter White/Mint Green Tea Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop complete this oh-so-shabby and sweet little card!

Beverly is offering a $20 gift certificate to her shop for our lucky Tea Room winner this week, so hop on over and give our Pumpkin Garden challenge a try!!
