Pretty in Pink

This weeks Shabby Tea Room challenge is to use colors from the inspiration photo and to include a flower. When I saw the picture of the glasses with pink lemonade I knew I had to use one of my pink acrylic buttons from Bazzill Basics for this card. My mom gave me a scrap from some old lace curtains that I used for center, I cut out the chandelier with my cricut, and the leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch and I painted the edges with some acrylic paint. I used hand dyed seam binding for ribbon and attached a mini tag that says 'best wishes' I have been looking at lots of shabby rooms with all white furniture so I wanted this card to be mostly white and simple. The tray looked metal so I wanted to include a metal corner but of course it had to be painted white!
Thanks for looking and have a great week!
