"Sweet Summertime" Revisited...

Here's a second card for the latest challenge this week at The Shabby Tea Room.  This time, I went with more pastel shades of the colors in this challenge photo...

and came up with this soft and shabby square friendship card...

brown eyelash fibers arranged around the layers of the fabric flower...

and a white chipboard flourish inked and covered with clear German glass glitter for a sugary touch...

Patterned Paper: Collage Press/Pink Paislee London Market collection
Edge Punch: Martha Stewart Floral Band      Leaf die: Sizzix      Crochet lace: TheFunkieJunkie on Zibbet
Flourish die: Spellbinders (Floral Flourish)      Fabric flower: Frogfeathers on Etsy
Paper rose: Prima      Sentiment stamp: Papertrey Ink      Pearls: Prima
Handcrafted stick pin (using Maya Road heart pin as base)

And that's it for this weekend!  Thanks again for stopping by, and I'll be back with a couple more cards this coming week.
