Hi there! I'm back with another card today. Whew! I'm totally beat from all the cards that I've had to make since last week. I actually haven't stopped yet, I have more to make this week. I've been having card-maker's block the whole weekend. I'm probably going to be scrambling all week to try to finish the rest off. It's a good thing I made this one in advance! :) Yay!
So welcome to The Shabby Tea Room 127 - For the Love of Books.
Since the theme of this week's challenge is all about books, I used book print as the main background panel for my card. I stamped a strip of vintage cream cardstock with kraft chevrons and adhered it over the book print panel. I also adhered a strip of lace in the middle and a strip of...lol I really don't know what that is. Can someone tell me what the trim with little cotton balls is called? Hee hee.
Then I added the ribbon and flowers for some texture and color. I die cut a cardstock doily and attached my sentiment over it.
I attached some banners underneath the doily sentiment to balance things out. It's also a great color addition to an otherwise neutral card.
This is a wonderful, wonderful challenge! So make sure you join in! Head on over to The Shabby Tea Room for more inspiration from their fabulous design team! See you there! :)
