Tiny Blessings

Hello friends,

Time for a new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room! This fortnight our theme is called ABC-123 and the challenge is to use the inspiration photo on The Shabby Tea Room blog to create a card or project. This week’s lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from Paper Temptress! I was inspired by the chalk board and the lovely yellow sunflowers in the photo. I used a sentiment stamp from JustRite as the main focus on black paper. I distressed the edges with white craft paint for a chalk board effect. I layered the stamped sentiment, ink-pot and pen on a vellum banner and finished off with lots of sunflowers, twine, a butterfly and a yellow bow.

I entered my card in the following challenges:
