You're Lovely

A sewing theme this week at The Shabby Tea Room!
And, the lovely inspiration photo!

Hi there!

I certainly wanted to get here sooner to post this card.  I think I am getting just under the wire to enter this awesome challenge!  I was so inspired to go shabby chic.  I love the colors and the little pink rose flowers on the carpet.  My card is self-explanatory being that I stamped, added embellishments, and sewed.  And, aren't those gold leaves from Prima just divine?! 

As I previously said, I wanted to get here sooner.  We spent most of the weekend visiting my mother-in-law in the hospital.  She is doing better.  I hope she continues with a speedy recovery.  Please keep her in your prayers.  I'd appreciate it!  Thanks so much for taking a peek here today.  Take care and have a wonderful week...hugsss!
