All Neutrals....

Hello all!!

How are you?

This is my last post before I become MIA for a few days. Tomorrow we will recieve our tomato delivery. 20 bushles of plum tomatos will arrive in the morning so we can begin making our tomato sauce. We end up having roughly 25-28 cases of sauce to last throughout the year.

Well onto my card...
It's all neutrals over at The Shabby Tea Room


Here is my card...no sentiment yet.


The pattern paper is from My Mind's Eye. The wood doily and silhouette are from Kaiser kraft. I used white ink to soften the doily then stamped it with a doily stamp from Waltingmouse and used peacock ink from Color Box.

I covered the silhouette with espresso ink from Color Box. The cheesecloth is from Michaels. The twine is from Papertrey Ink.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The felt is from PTI. The leave die is Die-Namics from My Favorite Things Stamps.

The lace is from Flourishes. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to create the border.  The pearls are from Michaels.

I am also entering this into Waltingmouse Sketch Challenge

Thanks for stopping by today!

Take a quick peek at my first tutorial... let me know what you think!

Enjoy your day!

Michelle
