The Shabby Tea Room # 22

Hello friends!

Saturday at last and just time to post my submission for  The Shabby Tea Room wk# 22 challenge.

The title for this weeks challenge is `Reflections` and we are to produce a project using this picture with reflections and/or these colours .

Here is my card;
 I`ve tried to use the colours in the photograph and although there is no blue in it, the way the white reflects in the mirror gives it a slight bluish tinge. I also quite liked the contrast between the biege and the blue.

I started with a white square card ( 5" x 5" )
I matted and layered some pale blue pearlescent card and some of the new DP from Pink Petticoat
Vintage Roses collection in washed cream. I adore these papers and know I`ll be using them again and again.
The chandellier is a digi stamp, also by Pink Petticoat and I`ve jazzed it up a bit with some small clear gems, cut out with an oval nestie. I`ve then cut a larger nestie as a border in the blue.
I wrapped a black ribbon around the card and finished it off with a bow and added some larger clear gems in the bottom corners.

Well folks, it was payday for me yesterday so I got straight on the net and had myself a little ( very little) spending spree. I can`t wait until my goodies arrive and I`ll be showing off with some new designs soon.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  6. what an adorable card, and so perfect for our challenge this week in the Tea Room. I love that chandelier digi image, and the added gems are perfect. Adds such a nice sparkle and reflection to the design. I also added some blue to my card....I agree with you that the mirror seems to bounce back some blue. Thanks so much for playing along with us this week.
