ISSC18 and Shabby Tea Room Week #116 - Color Me Pretty

This week I have combined a new colour challenge from The Shabby Tea Room with my iSpy sketch challenge sketch.  I have been following The Shabby Tea Room blog for a little while and love the talented design team and the lovely inspiration pieces they provide. 

So here is the iSpy sketch:



The Shabby Tea Room theme of 'Color Me Pretty' comes with this gorgous  photo for inspiration and Tammy the designer asked that you create a card or project inspired by the photo USING WHITE/CREAM, PINK and BLUE plus FLOWERS and A FABRIC ELEMENT! (Your fabric element could be anything that is made from material - ribbon, lace, burlap, fabric, chenille, velvet, etc.).



And here is the card I created:

 


The papers I used had a definite pink and blue theme to them and there were also touches of white/cream throughout.

Paper - Bazzill Basics Vintage Marketplace, My Minds Eye and  co-ordinating cardstock.

 



The first additional element of fabric came in the form of the fabric covered buttons that a found in my stash. I mounted these on scallop circles cut with my Quikcutz dies.  I also added some seam binding, ric rac braid and picot lace to the card.

 


The flower element was made from an MFT scalloped rolled flower die.  The buttons I chose also had flowers on them.


 


To finish off I also added the "Happy Birthday " sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
