JOY - Sweet Soft Colors

Happy Saturday.

I am entering today's project in this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.  Even on the weeks I don't have a project to enter, it is truly one of my favorite sites for shabby inspiration.

I don't do shabby well on my own, but I love the look of it and when it is done well, I have been known to swoon!

Well, the girls at the Shabby Tea Room never disappoint!

This week's challenge was pastel colors and a holiday theme.  Here is this week's challenge photo:

Aren't those treats just mouthwatering?

To make my card, I used papers that have been in my stash forever so I can't even tell you what they are.  But the image that I colored is from Designer Digitals and it is on sale today for 50 cents.  It is part of a brush pack.  LOVE IT !

I cut the image into a rectangle and then used the Fleur De Lis die for the mat.  Spellbinders makes the most wonderful dies!!

Adding distress ink to everything gave it the shabby look I was trying to achieve.

Run on over to the Shabby Tea Room and see all the beautiful entries.  And while you are there, you should join in too.

Tomorrow I will be back with this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge.  Please come back then to take a look.
