Birthday Wishes - Tea Room & Pink Persimmon

This week Pink Persimmon is joining in the fun over at The Shabby Tea Room. There's a great opportunity to win a $40 gift certificate to the Pink Persimmon shop. Woot! The Tea Room is always full of fantastic inspiration and beautiful design. Did you know that you don't have to have a shabby chic style to participate at the Tea Room? Stampers and crafters with all kinds of styles (not just shabby chic or vintage) are invited to play along... so, please join us!

I love the idea behind this week's challenge:

I chose October because my sweet girlie is going to be celebrating then.  Plus, I just love a good reason to pour on the pink.

Holiday Favors from Pink Persimmon is such a great set for a variety of occasions. (I dare you not to fall in love with that Santa!)  My cute clown is holding a balloon bouquet and I added a little pom-pom for his hat.  The majority of the image is colored with Copics but I paper-pieced his collar and hat for a bit of added interest.  The sentiments are from Vintage Greetings.  I isolated portions of two different stamps and did some selective inking for a custom greeting.

Join us in the Tea Room, celebrate your birthday in August (even if it's not in August!), and enter to win a fabby Pink Persimmon prize.  Can't wait to see what you create!!



Stamps: Pink Persimmon - Holiday Favors and Vintage Greetings; Ink: Memento; Cardstock: PTI Kraft and Rustic Cream; Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye - Blush; Sassy Somethings: Prima flower and PTI buttons
