Week 20 at the Shabby Tea Room


I am loving this card....the color inspiration for this came from Carla Suto at StampTV where she hosts the color challenge each Monday. We were to use black and ivory with one color as an accent. I am entering this in the week #20 1,2,3 challenge at The Shabby Tea Room where we are to use 1 ribbon, two buttons and three pieces die cut on our project. This is some of my favorite dp (K&Co), it is double sided, so I used the darker side as my base layer on a ivory card base and then cut with my labels 2 nesties by spellbinders a layer in the floral dp and one in the ivory to stamp my sentiment from the "Friends" set by GinaK. I used a SU scallop punch to make the back layer on my flower and then hand cut a flower from the dp. The brad attaching those two layers is also by K&Co. I used the aqua ribbon by Martha Stewart and the two buttons are GKD.I am also entering this at StampTV in Carla's color challenge. Hope that you can stop by both sites and play along. Let me know what you think of this....I appreciate all of you.

Edit: This card received an honorable mention at The Shabby Tea Room
