I'm back to share a card I made for The Shabby Tea Room's challenge, Relax and Enjoy!  Here's the inspiration photo.

From the inspiration photo, I took the colors and the roses and flowers in the towels as the basis of my card.  I followed the VLV sketch for July week 4.  Isn't Laurie's sketch a fun one?

Here's my card.  I used some of my favorite papers, Basic Grey's "Lemonade."  Nothing like relaxing and enjoying a cold glass of lemonade on a hot summer day!

Here's a closeup of the embellishments.  I sewed all around the edge of the card.  The heart is a Nestabilities die with a hand cut mat.   A little pink seam binding, pink rose, and tiny tag cut with a Labels 4 Nesties die finish it off.

Stamps:  Verve "Happy Hello"
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Papers:  Basic Grey "Lemonade"
Other:  Nestabilites Heart die and Labels dies, pink seam binding, Recollections rose, knitting needle to curl wire, sewing machine, MFT small scallop die

Thanks for stopping by!
