The Shabby Tea Room and a Happy Birthday To Tracey McNeely!

Time for a brand new challenge at the Shabby Tearoom! This week we have a party going on!! The challenge this week is to create a card/project which includes banners & cakes/cupcakes with orange and/or yellow. This card was also created in honour of my dear friend, Tracey McNeely. Not only is she really easy to chat with, she is super talented too. Happy Birthday, sweet lady! I am linking up to her birthday hop! LINK UP here.


This card was something a little different for me. I wanted to create something a little more "feminine" but also clean lined. The pansy punch from Stampin' Up was my starting point, and so I created some Fall flowers, to achieve the yellow in my card. I used the Paper Sweeties stamp called  So Sweet of You. I also used the Stampin' Up Cupcake punch. There is a lot going on with this card...a cork pin, a die cut banner, some pearls and a die cut lacy circle...oh and some lace ribbon too...

We hope you will join us at The Shabby Tearoom  Any product is welcome and any style too!!! Debbie is offering a Paper Sweeties prize to the winner too!
