Waltzingmouse Sketch, Color Throw Down, and a Tea Party!!!

Hello everyone!!! I finally had a little time to stamp this evening while I watched Project Runway...love that show!!! Anyway...I made this for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #16 (BTW, I was one of the Top Mouse Award winners last week...Whoohoo!!!) and I used the pretty colors from this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge #112: Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, and Pumpkin Pie. The flowers were stamped with Waltzingmouse Stamps Sewing Box Hugs set and papers from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush papers. The button, twine, and the Candy Dots finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog - Fancy Florals
2. Stamp Simple #159 - think in 3's
3. Sisterhood of Crafters - use 3 flowers on your card
4. Caardvarks - clean and simple
5. Creative Card Crew Challenge - flowers
6. Craft Your Passion Challenge - clean and simple
7. Paper Cupcakes - fall inspiration

This is the card I made on Tuesday for this weeks Color Challenge on Splitcoast to use Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, and Rose Red. My dessert option was blue. I had a hard time with the yellow, though...the flower centers in the background paper were punched from a scrap of yellow cardstock and glued to centers...not a whole lot of yellow but at least it's there!!! This is also for da Mudders Teapot Tuesday challenge to help Summer win the Tutu by bringing stash that's worth all of the cash! We were to gussy up our cards with lots of stuff...ribbon, bling, flowers...ya know, all the things we love to hoard!!! I used the Mojo Monday Sketch #158 for the layout...stamped the adorable little teapot from PTI's Tea for Two set with Ballet Blue Craft ink and embossed with clear ep. The little metal flowers with the blingy centers are from Making Memories and the ribbon and pearls finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: PTI's Tea for Two
Paper: White, Basic Grey, Summer Sun, Stampin Up dp
Ink: Basic Grey, Ballet Blue
Accessories: Ribbon, Pearls, Metal Flowers, Clear ep
