The Shabby Tea Room 129 - Summer Cottage

Hi there friends! I hope your weekend was lovely. It's Monday and it's my last week as a Guest Designer over at The Shabby Tea Room. It's been such a great month. I have enjoyed it so much! 

August Guest Designers!
Challenge 129 is themed Summer Cottage. And here's the beautiful inspiration photo.
The assignment is to use the colors from the photo, include some distressing/shabby elements, and add a title/sentiment.

Here's my project for this week's challenge. I took some of the colors from the inspiration photo for my card. Also, I used the idea of the two large cabinets in the background and decided to make banners that mimicked them. 

Then I cut a strip of vintage cream cardstock and used Lovely Layers from PTI and stamped some of the smaller flowers and leaves on it.

For my main image, I used layered the beautiful flower image, also from Lovely Layers, and stamped them in different colors. I inked the edges of my card and flowers with some distress ink. Then to soften the card, I tied a ribbon and added a little flower on top of it.
