Have a Beautiful Day - TSTR 150

Hey Everyone!

{Yay! this card was chosen as TSTR Honorable Mention Cup of Tea on 1/28/13}

I hope this find everyone snuggled up and warm. Yesterday was a snow day in my area (not much snow) and today they called for early dismissal predicting snow. However, I think it was a little knee jerk.  We are just starting to see some flurries. Oh well, we snuggled up from the bitter cold with some hot cocoa! Which brings me to my late post this evening. I had intended to get this up earlier in the day, but a change in plans due to Mother Nature I guess! :-)

I have been working on a large card order and DT stuff, but I needed a birthday card for a special friend, so I took a break and a little inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room.

I started with a white card base and I pieced together my patterned papers adding a length of crochet trim and a strand of gorgeous pearls. A prompt I took from the inspiration photo.  A heart doily was added to the center. I created a paper rosette using a white and pink polka-dot patterned paper and embellished it with some beautiful blooms. Last but not least, Have a Beautiful Day from Paper Sweeties You are Fabulous set was added to the lower right corner of the card front with Chocolate Chip ink.

Here is the inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room!
The theme is 'Just Pretty' use this beautiful photo for inspiration and create a card or project inspired by COLORS IN THE PHOTO AND INCLUDE STRIPES AND A FLOWER!


I would also like to mention that Paper Sweeties is having a Facebook Fan Page Contest!!!! You can check it out by going here! Good Luck!!!!
