It's "Hip to be square".....

yep, that is the theme for "The Shabby Tea Room Challenge" this week. Last week was my first week to play....as I just found out about this challenge ;D and guess what? I've got "honorable mention". How cool is that? Anyhow, I was kind of excited when I saw that the inspiration is a Quilt this week and I knew right away what I was going to do.

Here is the inspiration picture








and here is what I came up with



Recipe:
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, SU Pretty in Pink, K&Company Classic K McKenna

Stamps: Scripture Collection 1 from ODBD

Inks: SU Pretty in Pink, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Tattered Rose, Chalk Ink Toffee

Accessories: Nesties Labels 11, Cuttlebug embossing folder Fancy Corners, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool, Cricut Expression and my Accent Essentials cartridge fr the flower and the leaf, foam tape, 3D foam dots, Recollections half pearls

Doesn't this look just like an embroidered quilt? I had fun creating this card....I was is desperate need of "Therapy" again, kind of a norm lately, but hey, much cheaper than going to a therapist ;D. If you would like to find out more about this challenge head on over to "The Shabby Tea Room", but before you do, please let me know what you think about this card.

Well, this is it for right now. Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Hugs,
