The Shabby Tea Room #58

This is for my DT project for The Shabby Tea Room: How "Egg"-cellent challenge.  There is a wonderful inspiration photo to help get those creative juices flowing.  We are asked to use PASTELS and STRIPES for this weeks challenge.  Here is the photo:

This week's sponsor is:


They have the most wonderful selection of ribbons, twine and buttons!  Look at this prize:


Isn't that yummy!?!

We were lucky enough to receive some samples to work with this week and I can't wait to visit the store for more!  Check it out HERE.

I started with a scrap piece of striped paper and used my Tim Holtz Distressing tool on the edges after inking them with Antique Linen Distress ink.  I layered the green herringbone and pink velvet ribbons and cut and inked leaves from my new Spellbinders Foliage set.
I stamped a frame and sentiment from Waltzing Mouse Fancy Phrases and cut with the coordinating Spellbinders Fancy Tags.  I then topped it off with a fluffy bow from soft yellow seam binding and a button tied with pink striped baker's twine.
