Happy Birthday! The Shabby Tea Room Turns 1!

I am happy to congratulate Debbie Marcinkiewicz, creator of this inspirational site, as The Shabby Tea Room celebrates its first birthday. The Tea Room features a weekly challenge where you are provided with an inspirational photo and theme. Be sure to stop by and take a look. I am sure you will be inspired.

Here is this week’s inspiration photo and theme “Party Time”:

You are asked to design a CARD, BANNER and/or GIFT with a BIRTHDAY OR CELEBRATION THEME! (You need not use the colors in the inspiration photo.)

I used the February Scrap That! kit to create this birthday card. I love the color combination of pink and yellow and thought it was the perfect palette for this design.

I created my card base using pink cardstock then I distressed and inked the edges. You can’t be shabby without distressing! Lol. I used the yellow striped patterned paper from the kit as my base layer. The kit included cards and I loved the pink with the scalloped design.

I used my Sizzix Birthday Cake die to create the focal point of the card. This is quite possibly my favorite Sizzix die.  I used “From the Heart” and a banner stamp from Tattered Angels. I used Colorbox pigment ink in Rosebud then I embossed with clear embossing powder.  To finish my design, I applied pearls using my Pearl Pen by Viva D├ęcor in Ice White.

Happy Birthday and many, many more!
