challenges

I finally had the courage to play along with a new site The Shabby Tea Room. The guests on there really intimidate me with their creativity, but when I saw this weeks challenge, I knew the perfect papers to play with . These grays are from an older Anna Griffin line and the sketch was to use lots of squares and a quilt photo for inspiration. The card has lots of layers, all using 3d foam dots. The beautiful satin ribbon came from Aerie (a clothing store by american eagle and when you make a purchase, they tie your bag up- great way to recycle!) It also meets a few other challenges: Cute card thursday: monochromatic, Stampin for the weekend: ribbons and bows, OUr creative corner: bows, totally gorjuss: create texture (satin ribbon, 3d, pearls, embossing), corrosive challenge: texture and the cuttlebug spot: add bling!
This card was so much fun to make! I love vintage and shabby! I purchased this new ribbon from an etsy seller and adore it! it is tea dyed and crinkled- very vintage looking! The card was inspired by the sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You on monday. Again, older Anna Griffin papers, new SU! sentiment, prima vintage flower, and ink distressed. All meets the challenges for the above sites.
Finally, this card used the remaining scraps from above card. My nieces b'day is this week and I needed an appropriate preteen card. I used the bonus sketch at 2S4Y which helped me out alot! I love this satin ribbon with cupcakes all over it- a bargain from Joann Fabrics by Debbie Mumm.
challenge also for tuesday morning sketches: soft hues, flowers and ribbons , and creative crew card: happy birthday!
Thanks for visiting today!
