Friends with Flair Meets Vintage White

Hi Ya!

It's Friday and I am joining up with Unity's Friends with Flair this week inspired by The Shabby Tea Room's Vintage White Challenge! The challenge is to create a project using WHITE OR CREAM, KRAFT, BROWN OR BLACK.
Look at this amazing inspiration photograph!
An angled close up!

I went to my trusty scrap box and found everything I needed!  I chose images from the Unity KOM 07/09. There are so many wonderful images in this set.  
I was inspired by the oval mirror in the photograph, so that is
 how I chose the layout for my focal image.
Next using a dainty doily, crochet trim, twine, and a flower for the finishing 
touches makes this card all set for mailing!

Everything on this card came from my scrap box, so I am entering it into the lovely Jules Crafty Snippet Challenge. My scrap pile is NEVER ending, 
so I appreciate Jules challenge each week making me dig there first! :-)

Hope you have a Fantastic Day!
~Tammy~

I gave a gasp when I saw this, Tammy. It is soooo beautiful, in a quiet hushed way. I love the serene color palette, the thoughtful way you used an oval to mimic the mirror, and the pretty papers. Glad they all happened to be scraps - they play well together!! I was thinking of you today, even before you left me a comment. I miss ya!

Elizabeth said...

Lovely card and you've interpreted the theme photo beautifully - really shabby chic. I appreciate Jules snippet challenge too because, like you, I now look at my scrap mountain first when designing a project ... not that it's making much impression on the height of the mountain, it's still pretty high :) Elizabeth x
