The Shabby Tea Room - Enjoy Your Special Day

Hello there friends!  I've got some fun news, I'm the guest designer this week over at The Shabby Tea Room
The challenge for this week, #125 is "Sweet Summertime" create a card or project inspired by the COLORS in the photo below AND INCLUDE FLOWERS PLUS A STAMPED ELEMENT! 

For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Happy Hydrangea and the new The Sweet Life roses set.  I tried to incorporate the three elements from the inspiration photo onto my card, I stamped the roses onto my background and used a woodgrain impressions plate to add texture.  Then I added the newsprint die cut hexagons along the left side of my card and finally I highlighted a single hydrangea bloom by popping it up and layering it onto several mats.
Supplies: Happy Hydrangea + dies, The Sweet Life, Hexagon die, Mat Stack die, Houndstooth, Oval Nesties, Woodgrain Impressions plate, October Afternoon dp, Copics, Silk flower, Buttons, Foam tape.  Colors: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Lovely Lilac, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette.
 
Be sure to visit The Shabby Tea Room blog to see what the talented women on the design team came up with for this week's challenge and I hope you'll play along.
