Teapot Tuesday 121

This week our inspiration comes from this sweet scene of a little girls tea party.  Don't they look adorable?  Cindy has woven a story to go along with the destination this week of a pair of good friends who often have tea together and host many tea parties.  One of them is experiencing some severe health issues  so they haven't been able to have the parties like they used to and her birthday is coming up.  So we're going to be bringing tea party wishes to her. 

My card is based on an old tradition of leaving calling cards.  The stamp is actually made to be used for place cards, but when I paired it with the sentiment from the Rubbernecker Tea Time set, I thought it would make a cute calling card.  I added the punched cherry blossom border and just mounted it simply on Cherry Cobbler cs. 

I stamped the images first in VersaMark and then embossed with gold EP.  Then I took my markers and blender pen and colored it.  The last touch was the bow made from Cherry Cobbler seam binding wrapped in gold stretchy cording. 

I'm going to check out the gallery now.  Come on along and give it a look.

  1. I like the idea of having a stamp for place cards, although for me dinner ones would be more useful than a tea-cup. I used to do them for the office Christmas parties when C and I were in the same job.
    I said already how much I liked your gold embossing :D.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Lorraine. I hope you have a good day tomorrow.
