Week #55 - 'Flower Palette'

Welcome shabby friends!  Today is Danielle's very first time to host a challenge here in the Tea Room, and she has chosen this GORGEOUS inspiration photo for us all ...

... and asks that we create a card or project based on the colors from the inspiration picture and use FLOWERS!  Easy peesy, right?!?

Note: Because we are sponsored weekly by wonderful businesses who have graciously donated products and in the interest of fairness to all participants, any entries that do not follow our simple challenge rules will remain in the gallery but will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer - Linda Langes

Linda Langes - A Happy Scramper

And ... INTRODUCING a BRAND NEW feature beginning this March in the Tea Room -- MONTH-LONG GUEST DESIGNER SPOTS - yippiee!  We had so many fabulous entries for our most recent Design Team Call that is was impossible to narrow all of the gorgeousness down to just two positions.   After giving it some careful thought and consulting with the Design Team girlies, we decided to invite a few designers that are regulars here in the Tea Room and who submitted exceptionally beautiful application projects to Guest Design with the Shabby Girls for a month at a time -- FUN!  Please help me welcome our very first month-long Guest Designer ... Deb Saaranen!

Deb Saaranen - Dream In Color

Do you want to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer with the Shabby Girls?  It's very simple to apply ... simply participate in our weekly challenges and WOW us with your projects!  The Shabby Girls might be calling on you to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer!!!  Stay tuned :)

Wonderful inspiration picture to play along with! Beautiful inspiration by the design team, too! I accidently hit the wrong picture for my thumbnail. If you can remove it, I would appreciate it Debbie. I will relink the actual card photo! Oops!
