Back again....for The Shabby Tea Room!

Check out the inspiration pic...
Stripes and pastels is our focus...I'm trying to avoid another Easter card.

So, here is my take

I probably should have waited to take the picture in the morning. I took this one in the bathroom, and it still came out too dark!
The bottom paper is my stripes...from DCWV, distressed with antique linen ink.
The top paper I made with Hero Arts stamps and distressed with Milled lavender. The inks I used are VersaMagic spring pansy and pixie dust.

The bird stamp is Inkadinkado in Moss Green from Colorbox. Spellbinders dies distressed with shabby shutters. Pearsl and doily from craft store. White flourish is Melissa Frances. I cannot recall where the flying bird stamps are from.  Ribbon and pins are from  Emma's Paperie. Small paper flowers are from Recollections. Border die is from Papertrey Ink. Branch punch is ek success. Tag is Maya Road, altered. Sentiment is from HA stamped in black soot distress ink. Pink leaves are Prima.

Thanks for stopping by!
