Shabby Flowers and Hearts

Hello blog friends,

Today I share my guest designer card for the new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room Week #228 with the theme “Sweet Shabby Flowers”. You can create a card or TSTR #228project inspired by the lovely photo and include lace and flowers. I decided to use a little basket filled with hearts as focal point for my card. The die cut was assembled on a tag and attached to a bouquet of tulips and rosebuds, tied together with shabby ribbon. A lace border, lattice die cut and tiny butterflies complete my shabby card. Hope you like the card. The  Shabby Tea Room design team would love to see your sweet shabby card this week – come and join in the fun.
