The Shabby Tea Room. It's headed up by a few gals that are in my neck of the woods (central North Carolina), and the inspiration is just leaping off the page over there!! Their very first challenge is "Elegant Shabby" and is based on this picture, using colors of pink, cream, red, green, and brown.
For my card, I used some paper from the Mariposa collection by Die Cuts With A View as the focal point of the tag. The other papers are from K and Company and My Mind's Eye. The little flower chipboard piece is also from the Mariposa line. All of the stamps used are from Cornish Heritage Farms: Vintage Butterflies, French Script Backgrounder, and Ornamental Beauty (sentiment). The fabulous scrunchy seam binding is from Bluebird Lane Etsy shop. I stitched, distressed, painted, sanded, glimmer misted, and inked 'til I got that shabby look I wanted - such fun! If you like creating in this style, you'll definitely want to check out the samples and all the other submissions at The Shabby Tea Room. One really cool thing..... everyone's linked project is shown as a thumbnail, so you get a little peek before you even visit their blogs. That's new to me, and I love it!
