Today’s post I share with a happy dance – this is my first as design team member for The Shabby Tea Room Challenge blog! I am so honored and delighted to join the very talented team of ladies. This is going to be an incredible experience and a golden opportunity to learn more about card making and the shabby style. Thank you for holding thumbs for me and all your kind comments when I submitted my cards for the design team call. I appreciate it so much.
The theme for the The Shabby Tea Room challenge this fortnight is “Sweet as Sunshine”. Please hop over to The Shabby Tea Room to see the lovely inspiration photo and more details on how to enter the challenge. Our sponsor is Bugaboo stamps and they offer a lovely prize of 7 digi’s for this challenge!
For my card I was kindly sponsored with a yummy cupcake image that I layered on a paper doily. I coloured the image with my watercolor pencils and paper piece the cupcake layer and cream topping for more dimension. To embellish I added a gingham ribbon, some sequins, a red button and glitter. The sentiment is a a die cut from Marianne Designs Creatables.
