flowers and balloons…

Hello and welcome everyone~  I am happily back at The Shabby Tea Room!   My very first design team position was with this wonderfully shabby chic, romantic, vintage challenge blog and I am delighted to return. This week’s challenge #219 is hosted by Linda and the name is ‘Flowers & Balloons’.  She has asked that we create a card or project inspired by the photo below and be sure to use flowers and/or balloons!…


TSTR #219


Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo, a site with digital stamps for paper crafters.  I am using ‘Balloons’ in my card…

I printed the balloon image onto the checked paper and printed it again onto white card stock.  After using Copics to color the balloon, I used a paper piecing technique and fussy cut them before adhering them onto the checked paper image…

The sentiment and the scrolled tag that surround it are both from the ‘Best Wishes’ stamp set by Paper Sweeties. I layered on embellishments, as this is meant to be a party on paper!  I really like that this card could be used for either a birthday or a congratulatory occasion!

Because this card is 6″ square, I used a separate piece to form the inside of the card.  It is very simply embellished by the contrasting punched edge that makes the attachment from front to back panel…

I thought it was fun to switch up the colors inside and to add the sentiment onto the light blue card stock.  S0 now, think about balloons and flowers, the gorgeous colors of the inspiration photo and join us at The Shabby Tea Room for some fun with this challenge!

I will also be entering this card into these additional challenges;


Sending you blessings and ((hugs)),

    This card just oozes charm! I’m not a fan of digital images, but the way you incorporated it into the overall design instead of making in the center of attention is terrific! Very clever and very pretty!! TFS

    This card is too darling!! Welcome back to TSTR and I can’t wait to be working with you and getting to know you 🙂

    I’ve been drooling over your layered, delicate, distressed layers from the past few months, and then you pop up with a charming, much more earthly design and I am amazed at how you switch styles and yet it always looks like a Rebecca card and is always so well done!!!! You are amazing! Great work- always!

    A very pretty arrangement and gorgeous colors! I love the ruffled paper and those accent dots and the little tag is such a nice addition. I love the color contrast of those little dots, they make such a good contrast. Beautiful flowers and all of it is so pretty!
