summer cottage...TSTR #129

Welcome Monday!
Welcome to a new shabby challenge at The Shabby Tea Room. This week Starr is our hostess and she asks that we use:
                                       * COLOURS FROM THE PICTURE
                                       * DISTRESSING
                                       * SHABBY ELEMENTS
                                       * TITLE OR SENTIMENT

We are lucky again to have two wonderful sponsors in the Tea Room this week: Heather Hudson(Etsy) and Digital Papers By Janet (Etsy). I used Janet's Shabby Chic Banners 2 and Heather's Labels.

I wanted to use the Shabby Chic Banner in a different way to show you that you can use it for more than just banners and cards.. I used mine to decorate a cake slice box! It just so happens to be the perfect shape.. Had to trim it up a bit but it works beautifully and looks amazing!

I added some Distress Ink to my label and around my cake slice...some lacy goodness and satin flowers for a little shabby chic flair. 

Such lovely papers to work with.. added some paper tape edging and tea stained twill tape, tied in a bow to help close the box..
Don't forget you could win some awesome prizes this week. From Janet: 3 collages - 1st prize, 2 collages - 2nd prize, 1 collage - 3rd prize
I"m off to pop by the rest of the design team to see what they have created.
