The Shabby Tea Room #57 - DOILIES AND LACE

As some of you might have read before, I was asked to be the Guest Designer over at The Shabby Tea Room for the month of April.  Well, my first project was posted last week and I was all set for my 2nd week when Debbie (the creator of The Shabby Tea Room) emailed and asked if I would be interested in filling a spot for them full-time on their Design Team!?  I am so EXCITED and HONORED to have been chosen to be a part of this AWESOME team!  Everyone has been so great!  I hope you will "follow" me on this journey and join in on the challenges.  So, let's get started!!

This week's sponsor is:

Our little shop Cupcake Cards & Crafts is full of beautiful and trendy papers for card making and paper crafting. Website address is

Here's the inspiration photo this week:
The theme this week at The Shabby Tea Room is "Doilies and Lace".  These can be paper, fabric, stamps or whatever you can think of!  Here's what I came up with:
The soft colors in the paper reminded me of the soft colors in the photo and that's where I started.  The lace square is simply strips of lace layed out in the form of a square.  I attached it to a Spellbinders Lacey Square and stitched around the edges.  I added a lace flower along with flowers from Prima and Recollections and a ticket from Tim Holtz collection.
The sentiment is from Justrite You Inspire Me Cling set and surrounded by Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs  die cut in a soft lilac cardstock.  For a little bling, I put together a hat pin with a butterfly bead and some pearl flourishes from Recollections.
