Count your Blessings... ♥Shabby pinks and yellows♥

This card was made with some of this week's awesome challenges from around blogland! I first used this week's sketch from the Inspirational Card Sketches Blog, which I flipped around. I then used this week's challenge from The Shabby Tea Room Blog, to make a card or project that is Spring inspired and uses some faux or real stitching on it. And finally, I used this week's challenge from The Play Date Cafe blog, to make a card with different shades of pinks and some yellow. First here is the ICS Sketch and inspiration photo from the Play Date Cafe.
My card was made with some pink Bazzill Cardstock, some Shabby Chic paper from Prima as well as some chipboard, some pale yellow satin ribbon, Hero Arts pearls in pink and yellow, my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and of course, a Melissa Frances Rub-On.
Have a wonderful day/night!

Hugs....


P.S. I didn't forget to show you some pics of my new Craft Studio. It's just a little messy right now! LOL I will have them up shortly though!

Hey
I need some help here folks
I'm Looking to purchase [url=http://www.milesgershon.com/tv-stands.html][b]TV Stands[/b][/url] or TV [url=http://www.milesgershon.com][b]Wall Units[/b][/url] For a house I'min the process of buying.
Can anyonegive me a good recommendation of where is the topplace to buy these? I live in Alabama and I heard that the big thing about these [url=http://www.milesgershon.com][b]tv stands[/b][/url] is the cost of shipping and installation.
I also found this great article about wiring your entertainment center: http://www.helium.com/items/1577888-how-to-wire-your-home-entertainment-center

Thanks
