This week's The Shabby Tea Room challenge is "Embrace the White"---"create a card or project using mainly white or cream and one other subtle color." Here is the inspiration photo.
It is important when decorating this way to use different shades and textures to give the room warmth, so I applied this principle to my card.
I used a white card base with layer of cream cs I ran through the Cuttlebug with PTI's Picninc impression plate. The white doily was stamped with a vintage script in Tea Dye ink, and the edges inked. I also added a couple of butterflies in Spring Moss. The sentiment from Crafty Secrets Card Sentiments was cut with a ribbon label die . I would have loved to have used some of the trendy crinkled seam binding ribbon or some wide satin ribbon for more elegance, but since I had neither, I decided to add a more rustic element with cream twill. I used the Peony Spellbinders die and Dawn McVey's video for the flower. After putting the flower together, I added a little glue and glitter to the edges.
I like the mixing of different elements--yep, I'm the one wearing strings of pearls and multiple lockets with her t-shirt and jeans!
