The Shabby Tea Room Week #45

Hi there!

I entered the interesting challenge at http://www.shabbytearoom.blogspot.com/. The challenge was to make a card with white and/or cream plus one additional color. I did hold back and used just two colors. I am used to using more than just two colors, so it was a good challenge for me! I was shopping in Hobby Lobby and couldn't resist the nautral bamboo cream yarn for the flower. I learned how to make this certain flower from Danielle Flanders tutorial on her blog(May2010). The natural bamboo yarn looked soft and vintage to me. It was fun making it! I'll have to return and get more yarn for different colors.:-)Hope you all are having a good week! I appreciate any comments...thank you...take care!!!
