An excuse to use my favourite chipboard embellishment



I purchased a whole lot off chipboard embellishments at the craft show the other week, this little table was one of the pieces I got and absolutely love. I was worried that when I stamped the image that it would loose the engraved design but it didn't. I wanted to keep this piece for just the right project and when I saw the inspiration photo at The Shabby Tea Room I knew I just had to use my special little table.

I paper pieced the simple lamp design with paper that I have only recently purchased. I stamped the table with a light green stamp pad. Added the patterned paper on the bottom edge of the picture to form the carpet and added the lace, twine and little flower to give the card a shabby chic look. I have to admit I am really happy with the way this card turned out and wish I could get some more of these little tables.

The Challenges I have included-
The Shabby Tea Room-Flower Palette

Hope everyone's week is going well so far, mine is certainly better than last week.
