You know I love a shabby challenge! So, I played
along this week at the The Shabby Tea Room! We
were to use the inspiration photo as seen below. And, a
pennant, flag, or banner displayed on our card. I used
a banner with twine and cute little buttons. Dies and
punch for the focal point. I even dusted off my cricut
machine to incorporate a bird on my card. I popped
him up on a dimensional. I distressed edges with vintage
photo ink. A tiny rose, lace, seam binding,
and pearls to finish off my card.
Also, I used the following sweet design and entered
over at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
Here is the sketch we were to follow...
OK, friends! I have a couple hours before
my Mom and sisters arrive. I better go and check
on the finishing touches. I hope to get some great
photos of the birthday party! Thanks for stopping
by today! Take care, hugs!!:-))
