The Shabby Tea Room Challenge # 48 Sweet Hearts

Good morning all

I was delighted last week to get an Honourable mention for last week's challenge so here I am again entering for this weeks Shabby Team Room Challenge.  This is the photo inspiration this week:-

How gorgeous and this is want they want you to create:-

"... please create a card or project using HEARTS and any additional inspiration from the photo -- colors of pink, green, brown & neutral, doilies, polka dots, flowers, lace, ribbons ... OR ALL! "

So here goes for my card this week:-

So my recipe for this card is well you know the other day I mentioned I won the gorgeous Vintage Rose paper collection from Pink Petticoat well the pink polka dot background paper is from this collection.  My "shabby" flower was made from handcutting "rustic" circles from some green tissue paper (that actually my Vintage Rose papers were wrapped in!) how is that for recycling.  I'm loving how these flowers look and they are so easy peasy to do that you might be seeing a lot more of them in my creations - and the great thing is they will squash down flat to put into a normal envelope - although you might need to put instructions in with the card for the recipient to "fluff up" the flower - LOL!!!!  In the centre of the flower I've got a flower cup charm surrounding the sparkly brad.  The gorgeous vintage "for you" label was given to me by a crafting friend, the heart doily and lace ribbon was in my stash and of course the Tim Holtz distress inks came out to colour my edges.!

Hope you are all having a good day - if not this will make you laugh.........

Whilst sitting in my craft chair this morning it broke!!!!!!!!!!! Well if you don't mind chair I've lost nearly a stone and a half so come on thats just not fair.................... I know I sit on you a LOT but the crafting "work" has got to be done.

Happy crafting all

You made a fantastic job on your card Tina. Your lovely hand made flower looks just as nice on your card here as it does "in the flesh". I love the inked edges and the "for you" sentiment is very prettyI am sure I have seen this somewhere before, ha ha.
Good luck in the challenge.
