The Shabby Tea Room ~ Birthstones

Edit to note: This card made The Shabby Tea Room's Honorable Mention Cup of Tea! Yay! Thank you so much!

Hi there! Here today with a post for The Shabby Tea Room's challenge to create a card using the colors of your birthstone!

My birthstone is Amethyst!
I used a variety of goodness on my creation today! I started with a Kraft card base and the gingham paper is a free download from here.  I used the DeNami Designs Solid Decorative Crest stamped in my glue pad and doused in Martha Stewart Glitter. I cut a nested heart by spellbinders and then stamped The Heart from Season of Love by Waltzingmouse Stamps using the glue pad and adding glitter.
I used some flowers I have had forever from Prima! The rose bud are those **sniff sniff** being discontinued from Michael's. I added some lace trim and crinkle ribbon for a finishing touch.

I hope you have a Terrific Thursday!
~Tammy~
