PS ~ Thanks!

Happy Friday!! I have a shabby creation to share today that I'm entering in a new to me challenge. You see, my very dear blog friend Sue Leli is the newest member of the Papercraft Star design team! When visiting their site to wish her well I discovered their latest beautiful challenge photo. I was inspired by several things in the photo. The soft aquas and pinks, the roses on the comfy looking chair as well as those in the frame.

I've used a pretty rose floral paper from Websters Pages as my background. I added a bit of script paper topped with a length of seam binding tied in a simple knot mimicking the one on the dress form in the photo. A bit of frilly tulle trim and a paper lace doily reminded me of the fancy lace draped on the chair. I simply adore this $1.99 clear frame stamp I picked up eons ago at Archivers. I filled it with pretty DeNami roses and adorned it with pearls and a vintage safety pin. A couple of MFT royal rolled roses for more soft texture and I think I'm good to go!


That's it for me today, things to do and more things to do! ~Lisa
