The Challenge on The Shabby Tea Room is to use these colors and have a tea or picnic theme. I'm using  Me and Carrie Lou Stamps with a pretty adhesive fabric background from Micheal's and I colored the ribbon with copic re-inker. I used the tiny doily from Cheery Lynn and cut it into 4 pieces for the corners. Added some pretty peel off borders and flowers, leaves and stickles to finish the card.

Our Daily Bread Sketch

I made this for the Our Daily Bread Design sketch challenge this week.  I used the sewn with love sentiment and the spool and tape image.  I backed this with a Cheery Lynn Dutch scalloped square doily and the center piece is a scalloped square by Spellbinders and I ran it through the cuttlebug borders. I used some matching pearls and outlined everything with a silver pen. 

Flourishes Dainty Doilies

The challenge on Flourishes Timeless Tuesday is Dainty Doilies.   I used their Spring Bouquet stamp set and colored it with Copics.  I mounted that on a Spellbinders circle and trimmed it with pearls. Then I mounted that circle on Parisian Accents Spellbinders and a Cheery Lynn  French Pastry doily which I backed with a French Flair doily stacker.  I added some gems to this layer to finish the card.

Flourishes, Autumn Colors

Flourishes challenge this week is Autumn Colors.  I stamped the pretty Zinnia and colored the image with copics.  I used spellbinders label 26 for the image and backing and a Marianne Anja square for the green layers. All of the layers were edged in gold pen and the green layer was run through a cuttlebug dots folder.  The pretty corners are Marianne ivy corners and I dabbed some green and copper ink on them.

I added some leaves and gold borders to finish this card.

Flourishes case and backgrounds

There are some fun challenges on Flourishes this month. I used Butterflies and Blossoms stamp set and colored it with copics. The designer focus is on Makiko Jones and I chose one of her cards to case. The Timeless Tuesday challenge is to make your own background using stamps and I used the same stamp set for the background. I added a border made by a Martha Stewart punch and some ribbon. The sentiment is stamped on the center piece of elegant labels 4 dies by Spellbinders. I stamped and colored an extra butterfly and cut it out and popped it on the top.
