Textures and Patterns at The Shabby Tea Room

This week at The Shabby Tea Room it's all about
Textures and Patterns and using the inspiration photo below!

Our sponsor is Heather Hudson from

Make sure and pop on over to her Etsy shop
and check out all her digital collage sheets...
so many to choose from like the awesome one I used

My entire card was centered around the 
digital playing card I mentioned above.

I used 6 different snippets of scrap Halloween
paper and adhered them down for my background.

I cut a black doily out of a metallic paper
using Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Doily die.
You know, this is the very first doily die I ever purchased?
Worth it's weight in gold if you ask!

I added a twisted piece of glittery tulle underneath and the
vintage "playing card" on top.
A glittered edge was added to the top
from my HUGE stash of Halloween supplies!

To keep in with the vintage look,
a bit of rick rack was added to the bottom with gems.

Cut a cute little tag included with the collage sheet,
added a bow, star button and it was done....

Head on over to The Shabby Tea Room,

a gift certificate from My Artistic  Adventures yourself!!
