The Shabby Tea Room Challenge Week #107 – ‘Bright & Beautiful Spring’

Hello there everyone,

It is hard to believe that March is almost over.  Where does the time go?  The only good thing is soon Summer will be upon us.

In the Spirit of Spring and hearing the birds starting to chirp outside my window, I have created a card for this weeks Shabby Tea Room Weekly Challenge.  This is the first time I have entered this challenge and I really enjoyed it.

Our host Fran has chosen the theme of ‘Bright & Beautiful Spring’  and we were asked to use the colors Lilac, Yellow, Blue, Kraft and add a butterfly.  I have a hard time with this color combination but after several attempts (and a few re-designs) I finally came up with something:

I have not used Kraft paper very much before but I think I am now a fan!  This is what I really enjoy about these challenges.  It gets you to think outside the box and go beyond the cards that you always default to.

Thank you so much for stopping by tonight.  Hope to see you again.

Have a great evening,
