Happy Monday, peeps! I was honored for this card again at the Shabby Tea Room, and so today, I am pleased as punch to be the guest designer for this challenge:
‘Shabby Fall Party’ – create a card/project inspired by the photo and include a banner, cupcake, orange and yellow.
I searched my stash and came up with some papers that complemented each other and fit the challenge, along with my Circle Card Thinlits to make this card:
I find sometimes these flip cards do not stay closed, so I made a belly band to fit on my card, embellishing it with some orange ribbon and a Vintage Faceted Designer button. My cupcake is paper pieced and glittered up with some Dazzling Diamonds and accented with a little banner from Pennant Parade and an orange toothpick! Here is the card partially open:
I extended the right side panel of the card and gave it another fold so that there would be more room to write a sentiment. It shows on the front of the card as the polka-dotted one.
And here is the inside:
I love the fun colors from the inspiration photo, and I hope you’ll play along this week as well at the Shabby Tea Room! Be sure to check out all the designers’ awesome creations! And I'll be along later with my Merry Monday challenge as well!
The rallying cry in our household these days is “I’ll do it myself”! Here, she moved my wreath and holder, got her stool from the bathroom and was jumping on it, trying to insert a DVD into our flat screen TV (the DVD player is part of the TV)!!!!! Needless to say, she couldn’t jump quite that high, but she gave it a good try!
