Time for tea

Good morning everyone

This week's challenge at Allsorts is Time for tea and here is my card for the challenge - 
I began by embossing a piece of pink core'dinations with a floral embossing folder (sorry I have no more information than that. It was in the bottom of my embossing folder box and I couldn't find any name on it) and then sanding it back to reveal the core. I then matted it onto silver mirriboard and then attached some lace (from the Ribbon Girl) and a piece of pink heart ribbon (from my stash) to the centre. I attached the whole thing to a 5 x 7 card blank.
The image is Cutie from Crafter's Companion's Strawberry Kisses stamp range which I have coloured with the following Spectrum Noirs - 

  • cat - IG1 and IG3
  • bow - PP1, PP2 and PP4
  • tea cup - PP1, PP2, PP4, DR1, BP2 and GB3
  • shadow - BGR1
  • sky - IB1, TB1 and TB2

I cut the image out with Spellbinder's grand decorative ovals, inked whilst still in the die with spun sugar distress ink and then attached to the card base with Pinflair.

I cut several flowers using Spellbinder's Blooms 4 from scraps from my scrap box, layered them up and attached as shown. To finish I added some pearls to the centre of each flower.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - - week 269 - Time for Tea
