The Shabby Tea Room's challenge this week, because it involves one of my very favorite color schemes - whites and creams. The challenge for Week #4 is "Embrace the White" - to create a card or project using mainly white or cream and one other subtle color. This lovely inspiration photo was the jumping off point. For my card, I knew I wanted to use lots of vintage goodies, so I started out using some vintage sheet music that I received as a RAK from Louise at Kard Krazy some time ago, layered onto a panel of my "subtle color" (blue). Next came some gathered and aged crepe paper. My butterfly is from Tattered Angels, shabbied up with some distress ink and prettied with some clear glass glitter. I used some white hydrangea blooms off of a big box store stem, centered with a Basic Grey brad.
The teeny tiny sentiment is from the Botanical Bliss set by Cornish Heritage Farms. I love that their ATC line (All Things Considered) has these lovely small-scale sentiments - perfect for a tiny tag. Some vintage lace "antennae" and three vintage mother of pearl buttons finish it off. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, with some time to play!
