Time For Tea and More Challenges

Hi again everyone,

This is my second post today.

I had a really fun day of stamping, taking the opportunity to play along with a couple challenges that I normally don't have time for.  Since I had a few days off work last week, I was able to get cards finished for the challenges that I usually do, and so on this weekend, I had time to do some other challenges.  As you all know, there are tons of challenges in blog land.  I chose to do the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge and Inkspirations Challenge #25.

I couldn't decide which element in the picture that I wanted to use as my "inspiration" so I picked three, the color, the flowers and the pearls.  Here's my card using these three elements:

And here's the Inkspiration Challenge #25 layout:


Stamps: CreativiTEA set by Taylored Expressions
Card stock and DSP: Taylored Expressions
Ink: Memento tuxedo black
Other: SU Sizzix Texturez plate pattern #1, Nestabilities labels 9, EK Success daisy chain punch, medium and small pearls by Recollections, SU pretties kit large pearls, the Big Shot, dimensionals.

The tea pot and cup were paper pieced.

All in all, it was a really fun stamping day.  I hope you all have a great Memorial Day tomorrow and a great week,
