Hi Friends!

Happy Friday to you!  How are you doing on this
fine Friday?!  As you may know by now, my
favorite challenge is over at The Shabby Tea Room!

Here is the sweet beautiful photo we were to
follow this week...

For the challenge we were to follow the colors
in the photo and include lace, fabric, and a button.
Love that pink and aqua color!  Also, I noted the
polka dots, pink stripes, spools of thread, and pearls!
Lots of yummy shabby goodies in this photo!  So I
went to work with some stamps from Stampin' Up
for the sewing theme.  I used muslin fabric and all
the goodies that I just stated above. I used floss and
wound it around the stamped spool.  A needle was
added.  Lace, ribbon, and buttons to finish off the card. 

And, here is the inside of the card...
Hope you are having a fab creative day!  Thanks
so much for dropping by today!  Take care and enjoy
your weekend!
