Teapot Card

Happy Sunday, my lovely friends! I hope your day is filled with blessings. :o)

I had such fun making this card this weekend! I am a wee bit rushed, so forgive the blurry photograph. Grr. I may try to retake it before I deliver it.

I was feeling girly! (Nothing new, I know...hehe.)
The sweetie pie is an Elisabeth Bell stamp (Tea Time), which I've been anxious to color up with my Copics. She is absolutely precious with her tea and cookies! I thought it would be fun to make a shaped card for her base. :o) The teapot is from Once Upon a Princess, which I welded together with my Gypsy. I used one of my favorite My Mind's Eye Blush papers for the background because it kind of reminds me of a china pattern... and it looks like she's in a field of flowers. :o) The rosy wine base is embossed with the Victoria embossing folder for a touch of elegance. The lid is decorated with cream lace, flowers, a flat-back pearl strand, and a scalloped flowery pearl, which are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The gorgeous scalloped pearl and the pearl strand are recent gifts from a friend. I love them! :o)

The grass is cut from Create a Critter, with parts of it popped up for dimension. The scrolling vine is Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Fanciful Flourish, accented with a couple of WOC flowers. It was fate to see that pretty textured green cardstock in my scraps! Two fluttering butterflies are keeping her company, which I centered with tiny pearls. At the last minute I decided you can never have too many pearls, so I set down my camera and added a few along the handle. I just cannot help myself! :o) I hope it brings a smile to my loved one's heart. :o)
