Polka Dot Love

Hello blog friends,

Mondays are not my usual days to publish a blog post, but today is very special as I have the privilege to be the July special month-long guest designer for The Shabby TSTR #226Tea Room. Oh my,  never thought in my wildest dreams that I will have this opportunity to be part of this beautiful challenge blog. Thanks Debbie for your invitation to join the team this month. The theme for this week’s Shabby Tea Room challenge is “Polka Dot Love” and the challenge is to create a card or project inspired by the lovely photo and to include flowers and dots.

I decided to create a shabby card for a young girl with a free whimsical “Rain Boots” digital stamp from Broken Box Stock. After embellishing the boots with pearls and pink blossoms it reminds me of shoes little fairies would wear. After turning my craft room upside down to find a matching sentiment stamp I finally decided on this little treasure “Fairy Sweet” to match the boots. I added some die cut hearts in various sizes, fishtail banners , sweet blossoms, butterflies and a few sequins for bling. I had so much fun making this card and hope you will also join in at this week’s challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.
