CR84FN #7, Shabby Tea Room and Webster's Challenge

So, as you may know, I've been busy creating a bunch of CHA projects. Yesterday we had a snow day and I had some extra time so I decided to create a project just for fun. It definitely helps the creative juices flow when I stop to do that. I decided to have this card fit several challenges.



First, the colors are based of CR4FN10. Love this photo.



I used the sketch at the Shabby Tea Room for inspiration. I decided to flip it to the left and have the stripe running along the bottom.




See that yummy bow? I made it using some new scrunched seam binding I reaceived from Kimberly Tracy. She has the most gorgeous colors for sale at her site! You can see all 29 colors HERE. I'm sure you'll be seeing more of it on my blog soon.

Another awesome product I used to make this was my new Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro. I received it recently and LOVE it. I used the Perma-Tac on it. This is definitely my new favorite adhesive!

Finally, this card was made for the January Challenge at Inspire Me. The challenge was to create a thank you card for the 2010 Design Team. The new team will be announced soon and they wanted to celebrate the success of this year's group. I've loved working with this wonderful group of ladies. (And hope to continue to do so!)I used the mini papers from several lines and cut the center frame from a Life's Portrait journaling card.

So, that's it. One card that fulfilled lots of challenges!
Thanks for stopping by!

Stunning creation Annabelle. Don't you love when you get to do something for fun? I sure do. I LOVE this paper and your darling little flowers.
I will look into that glue gun. I am not so happy with my adhesive. I noticed some of my cards that were sitting around are starting to come up around the edges. TFS!

What a gorgeous, gorgeous card, Anabelle! I so love how you used the Seaside Retreat line to make a non-beachy card. You do such wonders with all things Webster's. :) Love how you flipped the Tea Room sketch and your use of that color palette is fabulous. I love just the tiny hint of lavender in the sentiment.

Where did you get the little turquoise flowers on the top of this beautiful card. My grandma had those in all different colors that she used on all kinds of crafts!
