The Shabby Tea Room #123

I'm super excited, and so honored to be this weeks guest designer at The Shabby Tea Room!  This week the theme is "Sew Crafty" and we needed to create a card or project  that includes buttons, ribbon/twine, and stitching (machine or faux), also we needed to be inspired by the colors of this drool worthy craft room in this photo:

I opted to make a criss cross card.  As you can see, the colors inspired me:

I was searching for the perfect paper for the base of this card, and after hunting high and low, I finally found this beautiful blue and white paper at Crafts Direct in St. Cloud.  I had the orange paper in my stash, and decided that I wanted to play off of the pink and orange in the photo.  I also love that color green, so I just had to have some in my card.  I used some pretty pink lace and topped it off with some divine twine.  For the pull out, I thought it would be cute to machine stitch the tab to the card.  I found the button in my stash.  The big medallion has been floating around in my "Found Objects" box, I have no idea where it came from or how it got there, but I did know that I had to use it on here.  Here's a peek at the pull out:
