Shabby Tea Room Challenge and Fun News!

I got a phone call yesterday from the cafe where I sell my cards. Someone went in yesterday and bought my entire stock of cards!! 15 cards gone in one go! How exciting!! But now I had an empty last night I decided to do a few cards to add to the small stash I had ready for restocking.

I had this gorgeous French fruit ad image printed out and waiting in a stack of vintage images I have for card making. Shabby Tea Room's theme this week is Vegetable Garden. Hmmm, but mine has fruit on it...well I read the details on the challenge and saw the card must INCLUDE VEGETABLES (OR FRUIT) AND TEXT! There is plenty of text on my vintage image and background paper and fruit, so I decided to enter this card!

This is the inspiration image:

My image is also an ad, but selling sugared fruits but I thought it fit the theme well!

Thanks so much for looking!  We are packing up tonight getting ready for our trip tomorrow, a week in Tuscany, can't wait!!!

This is beautiful, Cathi...I especially love that "wispy" rose trim! And congratulations on selling all your cards at once...although I know how it makes you feel that you have to get busy again, and quickly! LOL
