It's Tea Time My Friend....

How is everyone today ? I am playing over at The Shabby Tea Room  with this card for a friend...

This is the beautiful inspirational photo  and Fran asks that we create a card or project inspired by the colors in the photo and include a rose!

I was inspired by the Shabby looking flowers and used some Prima paper for my    background, which I embossed  in white and in clear...

The pitcher and the books had more of a vintage feel to them so after deciding on the lace , I inked my teapot in several colors,  used a mask for the flowers, embossed in clear, applied some TH crackle paint in some areas, then inked again....I am SO happy with the outcome....

The book is represented in my base paper and my doily was glimmer misted ...

Thank you so much for visiting ....have a great week everyone !!!

    What a beautiful creation this is I love the colors and effects, using a stand of pearls to make the steam of the teapot is a very cool idea! LOve it!
