Shabby tea room challenge week 144

Hello :) thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

I have made this card for a challenge at the shabby tea room, I absolutely love their challenges and the design team over there are amazing!! The challenge this week was to make a card using the colours pink,aqua,silver with some glitter.
This is what I came up with and I have got to say I really enjoyed this challenge but what I have missed is taking part each week due to moving home and having nowhere to craft I have really missed taking part, however I can't be beaten and I'm having to go through my boxes of craft bits to try and make a card which seems to take forever he he!

The products I used to make this card were:

Kraft card base
Grid paper from Cosmo cricket
Me to you bear chipboard embellishment
Vellum butterfly's
Tab cut with my cameo
Felt flower with a glitter centre
3D flowers handmade
Paper smooches stamp
Versamark ink
Doily cut with my cameo
Pattern tape
October afternoon flower paper
Glossy accents
Seam binding
Glitter glue
Foam pads

To make the card I cut down my backing paper and placed this on the front of my card, I then cut a strip of october afternoon paper and placed this on top of the grid paper,which i then added the doily with foam pads and placed the teddy on top.

Next I cut out the tab and stamped my greeting on top and I then added the washi tape along the bottom of this.

I adhered the tab near the middle of the card, and then made the flowers which I placed along the side of the doily. I wanted a more 3D effect so I found some vellum butterfly's and placed them onto my card front.

As I needed to add glitter I found a flower and added glitter to the centre. I finished off the card with white seam binding to make it look complete.

I really enjoyed making the card and taking part this week. I hope you enjoy the card too.
