Thrift Shop by October Afternoon

I must say this has been kind of a 'Shabby' or 'Vintage' week for me.  I don't usually do this style but it has been fun.  Although I think mine is more of a CAS Shabby. LOL!

Here is the Blog Tiffany sketch:
The Etsy Inpired Challenge this week is howbeadyful and I chose these as my inspiration:


For my card I used my Thrift Shop paper from October Afternoon and my favorite PTI stamp (Tea for Two; and the Big & Bold).  The buttons are from PTI and the lace is May Arts.  These cards are also for the Frosted Designs challenge The Your Next Stamp challenge and the CAS-tastic challenge - buttons.

The sketch from Our Creative Corner this week:
Some inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room:


I am Guest Designer again over at Raise the Bar and the theme this week is music, so I again used my Thrift Shop paper.  The button and twill ribbon are from PTI as is the sentiment.  This is also for the Papertrey Chicks challenge - picnic - I went with the colors.


 Some more inspiration from howbeadyful for the ETSY Inspired challenge:

And another card using The Shabby Tea Room's inspiration.  For this card I used my Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge, some Papertrey and There She Goes stamp sets, Prima Leaves, the pin is from CTMH and the button and ribbon are PTI.  This one also fits the A Crafty Little Challenge - anything but a square and because I sponged the edges of the paper to 'age them' this fits The Crazy Challenge.


The inside.  I used some eyelets and circles of paper to create way to keep the tea bag holder closed making this fit the Practical Scrappers challenge -eyelets, I just wrapped some twine around each one.
