BLISS

Happy Wednesday to you! Another hot and humid day here in Virginia but not complaining. I like it that way. :-) Not much to share with you today. One lonely card. I made this card for JUGS brown, pink, and vanilla color challenge with inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room's "Cottage Comfort" photo seen here . A big congrats to the new Shabby Tea Room designers!

I pulled out some of my cherished Webster's Pages to make this. The first product line I purchased from them. Sigh. Such wonderful pattern papers. My inspiration from the photo was the dark brown bed with the striped comforter which I used brown Bazzill cardstock to represent and the lined paper for the bedspread. The flowers in the clear vase on the nightstand are represented with the pink crocheted flower and the sheer ribbon, the window panes were mimicked in the crystal glitter chipboard hearts (in my mind close to glass), a button hanging on a tag to resemble the hat on the wall, and I distressed the entire card to give it the worn/warm feeling the picture.
I have nothing left but a few scraps of these beloved papers now. I actually felt better that I used them instead of leaving them sitting in the paper organizer. Maybe one day I will use all of the papers I have? Bwahahahahaha!
Okay, have a great evening!

So beautiful!! I love how you incorporated the tag. I haven't purchased any Websters Pages partly for the reason that I don't think I'd be able to cut into it! It is surprising how long a piece of paper can last if your just making cards though!

Have a great evening! xx
