♥ Vintage Style ♥ {The Shabby Tea Room} and {My Big Giveaway Winner!!}

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Ready for a fresh week of creating? I know I am! :) This week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room is called "Vintage Boudoir". Just look at this gorgeous inspiration photo! I could just stare at this photo all day long! Love it! You need to create a card and/or project using the colors from the inspiration photo as well as 1 item related to sewing. Easy peasy!


This week the Shabby Girls got to create with some beautiful digi stamps by our sponsor, Tiffany Doodles. I chose this fun and pretty "Dancing Dress". I printed it out twice, once on some digi paper by Crafty Secrets and once on plain white cardstock. I cut just the dress out of the patterned paper and adhered it over the white cs image. I colored in the sash to match the one in the inspiration photo and added a small flower in the center.



The other papers on the card are by Prima and My Mind's Eye (the vintage New York label). I also added some seam binding, trim, buttons, pearls on my handmade stick pin as well as a mini wooden spool. And the "vintage style" stamp is from a Papertrey ink stamp set.


There will not be just 1 winner to this week's challenge but there will be runner-up's too! Our super fabulous sponsor Tiffany Doodles is giving away the following!

The Grand Prize Winner- 10 Digi's of your choice; 1st Place- 6 Digi's; 2nd Place- 4 Digi's; 3rd Place- 2 Digi's! Wow!


Don't forget to leave some love for the other Shabby Girls too! ;)
