The Shabby Tea Room - challenge #221

Hi everyone and welcome to another fun week at The Shabby Tea Room! This week we have a beautiful shabby inspiration picture for you but remember, what you make need not be shabby to enter to win!!

This week Lenet is our creative host and she has chosen the theme of 'Vintage Love' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration!   Lenet asks that you create a card or project inspired by the COLORS IN THE PHOTO AND INCLUDE LACE/RIBBON, ROSES + BLING/GLITTER!

Here's what I made...
I didn't want to add too much glitter because I wanted to keep the card kinda toned down over all so I used my clear Wink Of Stella pen to add just a slight touch of sparkle to the stamped roses. Speaking of those stamped roses...this week our sponsor is Paper Sweeties!! There's sooo much more than just the darling little "paper dolls" that you can dress up, they've really expanded their images and are now carrying dies to match their stamps!

Paper Sweeties is owned and illustrated by Debbie Marcinkiewicz, and offers  high-quality, on trend acrylic stamps, metal dies and embellishments.  Our heartwarming images allow paper crafters to create adorable dolls with interchangeable outfits and accessories! We also have a wide variety of wonderful all-occasion sentiments, labels, frames and accessory sets - perfect for every paper crafted project!  The Sweeties dolls, accessories and sentiments are so much fun to play with and are sure to bring back fond childhood memories!  You'll enjoy using the Sweeties stamps and dies to create projects for card making, scrap booking, party invitations and favors, home decor, gifts and so much more!

Winner will receive a $20 gift certificate from the Paper Sweeties boutique!


Please link your creations at The Shabby Tea Room by Sunday, June 8th to play along. Winner and Tea Time Terrific Top Three will be announced Monday, June 9th. We will have an all-new challenge for you to play along with on the 9th as well, so please come back and visit with us again for another chance to win!
