Week 125 Sweet Summertime in the Tea Room

Happy Monday!!
It is Week 125 in the Shabby Tea Room, and it REALLY is my last week as a Guest Designer..LOL.
The challenge this week is "Sweet Summertime" we would like to see you use the beautiful image below for color inspiration.  We would also like to see flowers and a stamped sentiment included in your project.
 Here is the yummy inspiration photo.

Here is what I decided to create.
Pin It!
It is a decorative tussie mussie that I created using the "B is for Banner" Digital collage sheets from Gecko Galz.  I used two of the banners, the lavender and the green.  I LOVE how it turned out!
The heart tag was created with a die and stamp that I won in the Tea Room when "just rite stamps" 
was the sponsor.  I LOVE the set of dies and stamps!  I also used some pink and blue roses, my favorite Champagne flatback pearls and a purple cameo. I tucked in some May Art's leafs and ivory pearl sprays all from Pro 31 Designs.  I LOVE the Blue and silver trim (also from Pro 31 Designs) at the top!
I used some Tim Holtz paper tape that I purchased from my best friend Ginny's store in downtown Dexter to attach my banner pieces together to form the tussie mussie.  I then added the flatback pearls in Pink around the edges (yummy if I do say so myself).  I then placed a little hole on one of the green banners at the top, and where the purple and green banners met in the opposite corner.  I attached the blue seam binding for my hanger.  Then I covered these holes up with the fabby blue and silver trim!
I used my crop o dile to punch a hole in the top of the purple banner.  Used a grommet there and on the heart.  I then attached the heart to the banner with another blue seam binding bow.  I attached a pink chandelier drop and another blue seam binding bow with beading wire to the bottom of my tussie mussie.  I also added the pink roses on each side at the bottom point.
I hope you will have some time to play with us in the Tea Room this week!!

I will be sharing this with
Make it Monday
