The Shabby Tea Room #152

Please go HERE if you are Blog Hopping with SOUS

Hello Shabby Tea Room fans.................look at this gorgeous photo Lenet has chosen to inspire you this week! The theme is "Happy Birthday"....Lenet asks that you use the colours Pink and Blue.

I really enjoy making pretty gift boxes!
My flowers were created using a punch with water colour paper. I added a touch of pink with water colour crayons.
I was hoping they would turn out kinda close to the ones in the photo!

Paper Sweeties is our sponsor this week..........."You're a Treasure" is from You are Amazing sentiment stamp set.

I covered the box with a wall paper border that I had found at an  OP shop......then painted it white. Love the embossed look and texture it adds to the outside of the box.

The other Shabby girls would love to show you their gorgeous creations.
