Week #145 - 'Shabby Chic Holiday'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week I am our host and I have chosen the theme of 'Shabby Chic Holiday' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration and I ask that you create a card or project inspired by the photo using PINK, AQUA, WHITE/CREAM and GLITTER!
 I loved the idea of this challenge and I thought I would make a Christmas/birthday card, as I know some people who have birthdays in December and I would get told off if i gave them something very christmassy as a birthday card.

So this is my card that I made using the above picture to inspire me. I hand sewed the card front as I wanted to use a lovely soft pink, to fit in with the theme. I found this really sweet teddy from me to you, which my friend is crazy on so I knew I had to use this on her card.

I then added the tags, looping twine thorough them and added a button.

The flowers have a very fine glitter centre which I thought they would be perfect for both the card and the challenge.

I am pleased with the end result as I know she will love her birthday card, and I had such a fun time playing along for this week challenge.
Please take a look at the shabby tea room, the cards are absolutely stunning and you are bound to find so much inspiration over there.

Thank you for taking time to visit me and looking at my cards, if there are any questions please ask. I hope you all have an amazing Christmas!
