Hey everyone,
I'm so excited to be a guest designer in the "The Shabby Tea Room" this week....thankyou so much Debbie for inviting me!

Create a card/project inspired by the colours in this pretty picture.......add Flowers or Balloons

I created a card using some pretty papers from a Heidi Swapp collection.

The balloons were cut using 'Celebration' cricut cartridge. I combined water colour paper and vellum for the balloons, colouring them with a soft pink ink. I love the look of the stitched string with silver thread.

The Shabby Girls have created such beautiful sure to stop by and have a peek!

Happy Creating
