The Shabby Tea Room #125 and ISSC26 - Merry Christmas

The girls over at The Shabby Tea Room set a summertime challenge this week that got me thinking mmmmmm......... I loved the colours of the challenge (blues, mauve, pinks and green and I was also thinking what I love most about Australian summer - and that would have to be Christmas - and then I came up with my card from there with the help of the iSpy sketch challenge.  

So here is the colour inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room.  This week Fran is their creative host and she has chosen the theme of 'Sweet Summertime' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration and Fran asks that you create a card or project inspired by the COLORS in the photo AND INCLUDE FLOWER(S) PLUS A STAMPED ELEMENT

And the sketch from iSpy looks like this

And here is my card:

I selected my papers on the theme of blue, pink and green from the MME Be Merry range.  Added the flowers and stamped image (MFT Christmas sentiment) to complete the challenge guidelines.  I gave the iSpy sketch had a minor change with the cross element on the side panel - mine is at the top.

The baubles are hung with some tinsel style braid which really picks up the pinks and blues in light.  I added some dimension to the baubles with foam tape and a Copic Spica pen

The dies were from MFT
