A new card and some challenges...

It's good to be back with my first new card for 2012 and some challenges!

The Shabby Tearoom have a photo inspiration of a Vintage Boudoir and are asking you to use the colours in the photo along with a sewing theme embellishment.

and here is my card.....

I used lots of greens and natural colour punched squares on some cream handmade  paper.
 I then added punched paper flowers with mini gem centres, butterflies, wooden and heart buttons (my sewing theme embellishment) and a little stamped bee. 

I used lots of old stash and  paper scraps and some new purchases...the wooden flower buttons.
I added some pink flowers to echo the floor in the photo. 

Other challenges...

Let's Craft and Create......Butterflies
The Pink Elephant......Hearts
One Stop Craft...Bingo line.....Pearls/Gems, Dies/Punches, Buttons

Hope you are recovering from the holidays and 'Thanks' for popping by...
Please leave me a comment as I love reading them...
TTFN   :)
