april showers at the Shabby Tea Room…

A palette of rose colors in the inspiration photo and the instruction to use lace OR ribbon (that’s cruel I tell ya!) and flowers!  I added some wrought iron fencing from the photo as well.




I jumped over the traditional April showers, right to May flowers.  Where I live, it’s early summer…which means temps over 100°.  My lush garden is really struggling now and at best will only last a couple of weeks more.  Card gardens last quite a bit longer!



I arranged an exuberant bouquet of millinery flowers on top of a Fleur de Lis Rectangle (Spellbinders) cut out of an old vellum dust jacket topping an inked cream colored panel.  I gathered a length of lace around the stems, tied with linen thread and holding a tag from PTIs’ Little Labels.



I embossed a wrought iron fence design from Background Basics: Wrought Iron, in Zings’ pewter embossing powder and added a length of crocheted lace trim topped with a mother of pearl heart button.  The patterned paper is from Primas’ Romantique paper pad collection and is stitched to the card base.



Sending smiles to you…

    This is so beautiful! I love the way you interpreted the challenge. The gathered lace tied with linen is inspired! Love the bouquet and love the wrought iron!!!

  • My word that embossing looks amazing with that fence! It really jumps off the page and looks like a metal embellishment! 🙂 Gorgeous work! 🙂
