The Shabby Tea Room - With Sympathy

Well, I have enjoyed my time immensely this month Guesting for The Shabby Tea Room, but with many things, all good things come to an end. This is my final post.
 I always have a hard time getting good photographs of white cards.  So as you can see from my card above that The Shabby Girls want you to create a card or project using WHITE as your main color (You may use cream, Kraft, Brown or Black as subtle accents)
Here is this gorgeous photo to inspire you with!  I swear I dream in white and if I didn't have boys in the house, I would so decorate like this with little pops of aqua perhaps.  This is just gorgeous! 

 Naturally, I started with a white card base. I created a white panel which has been embossed and had the edges distressed  and touched with some tea stain ink. I took some beautiful lace trim and added it to the center over a doily that has been cut in half. 

 I die-cut an oval and added my birdcage and With Sympathy sentiment to the center.  Adding some embellishments of pearls a double bow, and white paper roses to complete the look.
Please be sure to stop by The Shabby Tea Room to see the wonderful inspiration they have for you!  I also want to say thank you to Debbie for giving me this opportunity to be guest designer for the month of September! 
I hope you have a crafty day!
