I hope you can join in on these fun challenges and also take a look at the other designers beautiful handy work.
So here is the inspiration challenge photo for Week #213. The challenge for this week is to included ribbon, lace and flowers based on the colors in the photo below.
This is the card I created using these happy, beautiful, colors that remind me so much of Spring! I started by using just a basic cream colored cardstock, and then just adding the pieces of patterned paper atop of that. I used a border punch for the bottom part of the card and then used my sewing machine and sewed the two pieces together. I then just added some lace and some sweet seam binding along with a tag that I inked around the edges and then added a sweet sentiment. The mason jar is also from the same paper line I used for the card. The felt shaped hearts and flower are die cuts that I often use for many occasions. I then added the two leafs and a bit of twine to finish it all off.
Again, be sure to stop by The Shabby Tea Room for more wonderful inspiration!
