Pink Persimmon and The Shabby Tea Room #77

Happy Monday morning dear friends!!  I am happy to say that I am finally feeling better after having the worst chest cold I have had in quite a long time.  What a long haul that's for sure, but thank goodness for sick days.  Although I was a little embarrassed to call in sick on the 4th day of school, but it couldn't be helped.  Whew, hopefully my immune system will be a little stronger over the school year!!  Thank goodness I was all caught up on my Design Team goodies before I succumbed to illness!!

One of the projects I have been dying to share with you is a fun little card I made using Pink Persimmon goodies for The Shabby Tea Room!!!  Pink Persimmon is this week's sponsor and they are giving away a $40 gift certificate, so I hope you join in the fun!!  This week's theme is all about "Birthstones":
     ... and Pattie asks that we create a card or project inspired by the color of YOUR birthstone ... 

My birthday is in October, so my birthstone is a beautiful shade of rose, which of course you know is my favorite color!!!  So here's my take on the challenge:
I used several Pink Persimmon Stamp sets for this card!!  I just love each and every one of the Pink Persimmon Sets!!  I stamped the toy images from Baby Clothesline onto Rustic Cream Cardstock and enhanced each of the images with a soft pink Copic Marker.  I stamped the banner onto patterned paper and fussy cut each one and created the fun little banner.  I mounted the banner onto some vintage hymnal of my favorites in my collection!!  I stamped the small flower from the Large Banner Collection to make my own patterned paper and I fussy cut some of the flowers as well!  Such a fun little technique! Then, I embellished the card with machine stitching and a sweet hand dyed seam ribbon bow.  

Supplies Used:
Pink Persimmon Stamps:  Large and small Banner, Baby Clothesline, and Baby Greetings
Patterned Paper:  Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe
Prima Lace
Recollections Rose
Copic Markers
Recollections Pearls
Hand Dyed Seam Ribbon:  MemrieMare

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you have a wonderful day!!
