Make A Wish!

The Shabby Tea Room is celebrating its first birthday!  This week we were challenged to make a party themed project.  We were given an inspiration picture but not required to use it for the color scheme.

I used Amber's fun sketch for VLV week 1 as the basis of my layout, and all of the stamps I used are from Verve.  My original intent was to use the colors in the inspiration photo, but then I remembered that I had a little star embellishment that I could incorporate into the sketch.

Here's my card.  I used the colors of the beads on the star as the basis of the color scheme.  The candles and frosting circles are colored with Copics.  The frosting circles are a very pale blue color.

Here's a closer look at the beaded star.  I had a hard time getting a picture without too much glare!

Happy Birthday, Shabby Tea Room!
