Wild Orchid Challenge

Here is my take on these challenges....

I bought the lampshade just covered in the rose print fabric....just gave it a shabby chic and elegant look by making it pretty with trimmings.
Lace and pink organza ribbon: Wild Orchid Crafts
Beige rose trimming: Scott Street Fabrics
Green bead trimming: Lilia J
Pink velvet floral trim: Doodlebugs
Everything attached with a hot-glue gun.
I am re-decorating my spare bedroom in pink, green, white and cream. Once done I will upload the project for you to see. Still have a few things to paint and stitch.......
