Dusty Attic is Sponsoring TCR

Hello everyone! I loved this weeks color palette #84 from TCR. For the month of November Dusty Attic is sponsoring The Color Room, so I have made up a layout using the color palette and Dusty Attic chippies. I simply painted the Leafy Stems and Mini Shells with a white paint dabbler, the Mini Shells were covered in distress stickles.

Young Love

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful weekend!!
