Week #62 - 'Monochromatic'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week brings Sheri as our fabby host and she has chosen this beautiful photo as inspiration ...

... and asks that we create a card or project in a MONOCHROMATIC color palette ... use any ONE color with any neutrals (black, tan, white, cream, kraft) in your design this week!  (You need not use the colors in the inspiration photo ... unless you are inspired by them!)

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, Tammy Roberts - Paperie Sweetness!  Tammy earned this Guest Designer spot for her win during Week #52 - 'Luck of the Irish'!

And our May Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer is Michelle Bala - My Passion For Crafting!

Do you want to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer with the Shabby Girls?  It's as simple as participating in our weekly challenges and WOW-ing us with your projects!  The Shabby Girls might be calling on YOU to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer!!!

I have to thank you for the great inspiration this morning! I set out to do some blog hopping this morning and I got sidetracked here. This was the first blog I came to and I couldn't move on until making a card and posting my very first link here.
Thanks again!

I love all the inspiration found on this blog. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in these fun challenges (and for the chance to win some great prizes!)

Just an note about my tea bag... the bow is actually a dark pink but in the photos it looks more red... I'm not sure why... but my color is different shades of pink with some neutral colors. Thanks again!
