"Sweet Summer" At The Shabby Tea Room

Hi All!!

Before I get to today's card I wanted to mention that
"The Shabby Tea Room" has a Design Team Call out
for  a few new girls.
Go HERE and read all about it.
I have to say I am very proud to part of this "shabbylicous " Design Team!

Our theme is "Sweet Summer" using  the inspiration photo.
Doesn't it look yummy?
It has been so hot here, that one of those cool,
 refreshing drinks would be good right about now!

Our sponsor is "My Artistic Adventures".
I love working with Heather's digitals, they are so fun!!

I made a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 card, and following the photo,
I added burlap card stock that I sewed on.

Next came a real paper doily.
I received this doily in a package of birthday goodies from my
friend Ros at Mickey's Mom blog.
It was absolutely perfect for my card...thanks Ros!!

The yellow tag is from My Artisitic Adventures,
Isn't it pretty??
You get 6 tags, all different on a page,
she has them in pink, too, as you will see the other DT girls using!

I used a Papertrey Ink Mason Jar die cut from Vellum.
The paper straw you see in the jar is from Paper Sweeties Bubblegum Straws.
The tropical drink and it's little embellishments are from Impression Obsession.
The sentiment is an oldie from SU.

Now head on over to The Shabby Tea Room
and see what the other "shabby girls" have to inspire you
to join in the challenge with us!!

Entering the following challenges:
Mod Squad .... I am Tagging You
Melonheadz Friends .... Bright Colors
Always Playing With Paper .... Inspiration
I went with the drinks/colors
