TSTR Week #68 'My Favorite Things'

Hi there!

I couldn't resist entering the challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room again this week!  I had so much fun making this card!  We were to use our favorite paper and embellishments.  I just kept adding so many of my favorites to this shabby card!  I have many favorite papers and embellishments, but I so love Girls' Paperie soft beautiful paper.  I picked up the doily when we were in Amish Country.  I trimmed it down to fit  the card.  I used distress inks of tea dye, antiue linen, and walnut stain for the lace.  I added batting under the muslin fabric for dimension.  Scor-Tape came in handy for that little task.:-)  I thank you for visiting here today!  Take care and enjoy the rest of your week!:
