Fall Birthday – MOJO209 -The Shabby Tea Room 82

I am not a great fan of the color orange so I use it sparingly.  In a room full of orange, I will become anxious, depressed and twitchy.  What is that?  On the other hand, the card is for my sister’s birthday and she loves fall colors: orange, gold, brown…

This is for her and it is appropriate that she has a fall birthday since she loves these colors so much!  I managed to squeak a little in there just for my baby sis.

Our color inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room at http://www.theshabbytearoom.blogspot.com and our format challenge from Mojo Monday at http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com  are shown here.  (If you click on any of the images they will become a larger view.)

Papers:  K&Co. Specialty Paper, The Paper Company, Provo Craft Bitty Scrap Pads Fascination    Ink:  Ranger Distress Ink Tea Dye, Momento Bamboo Leaves    Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Circles, Martha Stewart Border Punch     Embellishments:  Michael’s buttons, cord and $1 bin stamp, Joann’s Ribbon and gold dots, vintage paper flourishes (A great euphemism for old stuff that I’ve hoarded for years and have nooo idea where they came from!).

Let me hear from you!!  The summer heat is over and there is much to celebrate today and for many days to come…  share the love!

    Your subtle touch of orange was ‘just’ enough, because I, like you, am not a fan of orange,,,but this works.

    Beautiful creation – I just love the hessian bow 🙂 Thanks for sharing with us at The Shabby Tearoom

    • Thank you, Fran. I had no idea what kind of bow I was making… I just made it! While I have your attention, is it Tearoom or Tea Room? I have the blinkie on my website and I think it says Tea Room. I have gotten other messages in the past that wrote it out as Tearoom, so I am confused.
