Sweet Dreams

Look at these lovely soothing colors that we get to play with at the Shabby Tea Room this week:


Wouldn't a guest here feel pampered in this room?  Here is my take on this week's colors:


It's so very difficult to find this pastel baby blue color anymore - mine came from a 12" paper pad by Colorbok that was at Walmart of all places!  I love all of the soft pastels in it, so you'll be seeing more of them, at least this season.  I also used an older punch, this pretty lacy one by Fiskar's, a toile-like background stamp, and this lovely label that's easy to cut out by hand, plus some die-cut flowers, some winter white seam binding and lots of pearls.

supplies: kraft, blue, (Colorbok Textured Dark Pastels), and winter white cardstock, Fiskar's lace punch, Hero Arts CG245 Classic Fabric Design, CL488 Congrats (stamped label), CL342 Everyday Sayings (sentiment), Adirondack Stonewash and an almost empty teardrop pad of ColorBox French blue inks, PTI die-cut flowers, swiss dot embossing folder, Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly, blue and white pearls, Hug Snug winter white seam binding

Blue is my favorite color! This card is beautiful. May have to purchase some of that cardstock, Lin! You are right, it is hard to find baby blue anywhere!

Lin! I finally got to the L's tonight! Whohooo! ;) I'm loving the blues on this card and the punched side edges. This would make a lovely wedding card too with a change of the sentiment!
