The Shabby Tea Room #67-'Classic Patterns'

Photo inspiration with yummy colors and patterns!

Hi Everyone!

I'm just getting under the wire here to post this card for the challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room.  Such pretty colors with yummy cupcakes for this week inspired me to make a card.  We are to use the colors in the inspiration photo and polka dots and/or gingham.  I did quite a bit of sewing on this card.  It all went well until the top of the card.  But, that was OK since I planned on adding some lace trim.:-)  Well, I better get the deck swept and some weeds pulled while we have great weather today.  It's in the 70's and sunny; perfect weather!:-))  Take care and enjoy your day!  Thanks for visiting!
