The Shabby Tea Room #217

We're having tons of fun with "Pretty Prints" at The Shabby Tea Room with this beautiful, frilly inspiration photo:

Also, while browsing Pintrest for some sketch ideas (I was running low on mojo) I found this elegant sketch at Cardabilities (adding to my faves!) which is oh, so awesome I combined it with TSTR:

I mentioned in my last TSTR post that I didn't have any fabric for last week's project, so off I went to my local craft store! I found what I think are quilting squares that come 24 in a pack in coordinating colors. The fabric squares are from Charms and come in a variety of lovely prints. I grabbed a couple of pack for future use.

I used Basic Grey paper pad along with my "go to" Neenah Solar White. I cut out 16 circles from the fabric and two colors of paper and distressed the edges a little. I then folded each one and piled them onto one of those Glueber doohickies (I saw a YouTube tute years ago for this). I edged the bottom with some seam binding and stuck a pearl in the center. The doily is Hero Arts Floral Lace Die, the flag is Die-Namics Fishtail Flags and the leaf is Poppystamps Lorelai Leaf. I added some Martha Stewart lace, a seam binding bow and the sentiment from Fiskars, stamped with Memento ink. Here's my card:

Thanks for looking! I'm off to explore Cardabilities blog!
