Tea for Two


Hello everyone!!! We had a cool rainy day here in Central Texas..the perfect day to stamp!!!
I made this card today for the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast....thanks for the great sketch, Roxie...this is just the thing for all us layer lovers!!!
This is also for Marilynn's Tea Pot challenge #4. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month we will celebrate by creating a pink teapot using this teapot as inspiration.
This is also for a few other challenges:
The Stamp Something Challenge Blog to use bling. I used glitter on the teapot flowers and the stamped image at the bottom.
Saturday Spotlight With Hidden Potential challenge to make a scene - mine is a tea party scene.
The CCEE challenge to celebrate da Muddermark's birthday with tea pots and polka dots.
The image from the retired SU set called Gentle Thoughts was colored with copics and dusted with glitter. The flower image from the same set was stamped with Rich Razzleberry and dusted with glitter. The ribbon, silver cording, and silver pearls finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Gentle Thoughts
Paper: White, Prism Razzleberry Light, Prism Classic Magenta, My Minds Eye dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Ribbon, Cuttlebug, Silver Cording, Silver Pearls, Copics, Glitter
