Sweet Hearts

Here's our photo inspiration for this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge:


And here's my take on it.......I zoomed in on the dotted green base of the tiered stand and the doilies, and then the yummy colors - I love the way the minty green, peachy pink, and chocolate work together!


I started with a chocolate card base, and trimmed a piece of Lasting Impressions Whimsical Dot in kiwi to fit the front.  Then I added a paper doily, and topped that with some hand-dyed seam binding (worn lipstick distress ink).  The hearts and sentiment are from an Impression Obsession clear set of hearts, stamped in worn lipstick and vintage photo distress inks, and I added some punched hearts and a lacey one that my friend Linda sent me, and topped it with a pearl heart gem. 

Supplies: chocolate, white, kraft cardstock, Lasting Impressions kiwi Whimsical Dot,  Impression Obsession CL65 Love is All Around, vintage photo and worn lipstick distress inks, heart-in-heart punch, lace heart, pink pearl heart, Hug Snug seam binding, dyed with worn lipstick distress ink, sentiment label is a cuttlebug die, cut apart to make smaller
