Shabby Tea Room #124 Oh So Pretty In Pink

I adore the challenges at the Shabby Tea Room.  I love all things shabby.  I loved going to the various tea houses and having our own teas with my mom.  The challenge this week is pretty in pink.

I came up with a thank you card with one of my favorite flowers--a peony.

I turned a short piece of lace into the lace bloom and dyed some seam binding for the side.

I have fallen back in love with heat embossing.  Specifically for the resist qualities to it.  I started my card by heat embossing my simple sentiment and then I was able to rub off the ink as I built the background.
