Polka Dot Love at "The Shabby Tea Room"

Happy Monday to you all....
Being Monday, you all know what that means.....
A NEW challenge at "The Shabby Tea Room"

This week Macarena has chosen the theme "Polka Dot Love"
adding Flowers and Dots and using the inspiration photo below....



Our sponsor this week is  the adorable "Paper Sweeties"
and I have chosen to use "Sweet Cuts Tea For Two" bundle....
this set comes with the tea pot stamp and sentiment you see...
along with the tea pot die to cut with....love that!!


I decided to switch gears and make a gift tag....
The base of the tag was built on a Prima blank tag....
I covered t with paper, then stamped an image of a vintage postcard on.....
and what I love about this postcard stamp is
the date stamped on says 1908 and Mich....
how about that, I have my own vintage Michigan postcard stamp!!!
I added a doily die cut to the bottom topped with a sheer bow, 
flower, stick pins and such.....


I used an eyelet punch and some pleated ribbon along the right side....
the top of the tag I used a corner die cut , a leaf flourish and 3 different sizes of butterflies..

I wish you could see this tag in person...it is HUGE and so much more prettier....

and see what the other "Shabby Girls"
have for you.....lots of pretty "eye candy" there....and why not join in with us!!!!
