Pretty in Purple

Hello friends,

It’s Monday and time for a new challenge at The Shabby Tea Room! Our challenge is called ‘BOO-riffic” and you can create a card or any project inspired by the inspiration photo on The Shabby Tea Room blog. The sponsor is Paper Sweeties and the winner will receive a $20 gift certificate from the Paper Sweeties boutique!

I’ve got something created in purple and black to share for this challenge – lace, pearls and lots of stamped roses. This is some of my favorite things to use on cards. The stamped roses, leaves and sentiment are from the Paper Sweeties Party Time bundle (stamps and dies set) & “You make Me Smile” sentiment set. Hope you’ll allow yourself some time to play along this fortnight at The Shabby Tea Room.

Challenges:
