Shabby Tea Room and Play Date Cafe Card


Well back for another posting for the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room this week and I realized it fit in with the colors at Play Date Cafe and their challenge #27. The challenge at PDC was to use light green and blue with cream and TSTR had an inspiration picture up this week. Please check out both of these sites. The ladies are super nice and the challenges are so much fun each week. On this card I used Stampin' Up sage shadow and bliss blue. I punched squares and then hand stitched along the lines. The image is a retired one from SU called Garden Collage. I embossed it with black embossing powder and colored the butterfly with the same colors as card stock. The shimmer is from Ranger stickles in Diamond. Thanks for taking the time to visit and please leave a comment if you have time.
