Elegance & Lace

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. A new week means a new challenge in The Shabby Tearoom! Tammy is your host this week and asks us create a card / project INSPIRED BY THE PHOTO using WHITE / CREAM, KRAFT and PINK plus LACE.

This week I got to play with some lovely vintage goodies from our sponsor, Crafty Secrets,who are giving away $50 gift certificate to the winnder of the Tearoom this week.

I made a wall hanging with a page from the Sweetchips Rectangle Album which I painted and layered with burlap, muslin and Love Mail Creative Scraps,Mini Vintage Creative Scraps and elements from the Creating with Vintage Typography CD. The birdie gets an Alpha Button sticker greeting, owhile other details include a chipboard heart from the album set that I glittered and bingo card from the CD which I printed onto iron on transfer paper and ironed onto canvas. Some cute Metal Bottle Caps add a quirky vintage finish!
