See You Soon for The Shabby Tea Room

Hi there! Welcome to another week’s challenge at The Shabby Tea Room! This week’s inspiration photo is a fabulous cake!

I have to tell you, I am NOT a fan of orange, usually… But isn’t this amazing? All that piping? WOW! That’s a real talent. So I guess the orange was OK just his time… ha ha!

Now after all that, I couldn’t show you a bright orange card could I? So I used a SOFT orange by using corals and apricots. This fabulous image is from Crafty Secrets called See You Soon. It comes with ‘see you soon’ and ‘saying hello’ sentiments. Crafty Secrets is our amazing sponsor for this month! I hope you will check out their store. They have so many lovely vintage images.

I have to apologize for the weird, bent stick pin! Looks odd huh? it’s actually a jewellery head pin and I bent it in such a way that it would stick out from between the flowers. The bend was hidden in the ribbon but I pulled it out a bit as I wanted more to show and for the beads to stick it out more. But it must have flipped around after I finished and now it looks very weird. Ha ha!

I hope you visit the Shabby Tea Room challenge blog to see all the GORGEOUS creations of our AMAZING design team! (Little Secret: I get to see them ahead and they are FAB!)

Enjoy, Rebecca
