So Sweet of You...

Hi Friends!

Happy Friday to you!  I hope all is well in your
world!  It's time again for another Shabby Tea Room
challenge!  Oh, and how sweet it is to be inspired
by this fun inspiration photo with fab color and even
a banner!

Here is the inspiration photo we were to follow...

I did make one attempt to make a rosette.  Nope
I won't show you how I fumbled at that wrinkled
little!  Anyways, I need more practice
at it.  So, I looked through my stash and found a
sweet K&Company one already made up...voila!
Just a couple of additions with heart, felt and pearls
and it was done.  It was then placed over a distressed
wooden star.  Also, the background was embossed
and painted lightly with white paint.  A canvas banner
made with felt and pearls.  Beautiful ribbon and
sentiment from Paper SweetiesCanvas trim, felt
hearts, and pins added to finish off the card.

Go on over and join in on the fun at The Shabby Tea Room!
Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care, hugs!

  2. This is so pretty, Maria! I need a rosette recently and couldn't find one to buy (where I was shopping) so I bought a die to make one. Got it made and have never uploaded the card...maybe someday. I also bought some of that canvas it. I think we're having some of the same ideas. :-)
