A Polka Dot Tea Party!

Sharon Johnson, of The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is sponsoring the challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room this week. She is offering a wonderful prize package! All details on how to win is HERE. This tea party set is the inspiration! And what an inspiration it is, whether using the polka dots, or a tea party theme, this will help get those creative juices flowing!
And here is the yummy kit, Sharon is offering! This kit features October Afternoon's paper, The Thrift Shop along with all that gorgeous ribbon!
And a close up of my super simple card! All paper is from October Afternoon's Ducks in a Row. I cut the letters from on of the pages to create my sentiment, as well as punching 4 circles to create my shabby flower. The paper ruffle is a strip of polka dot paper crunched, gathered, and secured with scor tape. Sheer ribbon is found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Several of The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Design Team members are playing along with The Shabby Tea Room challenge. Go check The Shabby Tea Room out, along with these super talented designers! Have a marvelous Monday and take good care!
