Sweet Dreams

Hello everyone,

What a hectic week, but I was determined to complete my card for the challenge at The Shabby Tearoom before Sunday evening. The challenge is to create a card or project based on an inspiration photo and use blue, white (or cream) and a neutral (kraft, brown, black, tan). The colour combination is one of my favourites and well, I just love to do shabby chic cards. This little Penny Black stamp is the only stamp in my collection that really fits the challenge “sweet dreams”. That little mouse really must have sweet dreams after he indulged in two cupcakes!

I entered the card in the following challenge:

A close-up of the rose, seam binding bow and pearls. The lovely pearl stamens (streamers) were made by my dear blog friend, Moz.

I used the following to create the card:

  • White and brown cardstock
  • NitWit designer paper “Cottage Charm Too”
  • Penny Black clear stamp set “Piece of my Heart”
  • Penny Black clear stamp set for sentiment “Betsy Bluebell”
  • Si Designs by Amanda clear stamp set for corners
  • Marianne Design Creatables for tag “LR0154”
  • Marianne Design Creatables for flower centres “LR0106”
  • Martha Stewart punch “Pop-up butterflies”
  • Pearls and pearl streamers
  • Guipere lace
  • Seam binding “Queen blue”
  • Paper roses and hydrangeas
  • Heart pearls
  • Stickles “Icicle”
  • Derwent Inktense and Lyra Rembrandt Aquarelle watercolour pencils
  • Tim Holtz distress ink “Vintage photo”

Thanks so much for stopping over today and enjoy a wonderful weekend.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Hi Amelia
    Ek is van Newcastle in KZN. So bly om te sien daar is nog Suid Afrikaners by The Shabby Rea Room. Ek is eintlik ‘n scrapper en maak dan kaartjies van die scraps wat oor is en verkoop dit.
    Jou kaartjies is pragtig.

    Such a lovely card – I love this colour combination.
    Thrilled to see the pearl streamers and chuffed that you managed to use them on one of your beautiful creations.
    Good luck with your challenges!
