Good morning and welcome back to my Saturday post for Our Creative Corner. It's time to have another cup of tea. This must be tea week for me because my card for yesterday's post was a tea pot and today the challenge at Our Creative Corner is Let's Have a Tea Party. Another fun and girly challenge for you this week.
I chose a sweet vintage image of little girls having a tea party. I used my PhotoShop Elements to remove the solid background, leaving only the little girls and the table. Then I layered it over a vintage postcard and printed it out. Then 'Celebrate Today' from PaperTrey Ink was stamped on the corner of the post card. I used French Vanilla and Bashful Blue along with an SU embossing folder. The gingham is from Designer Digitals and I digitally matched the color up to Bashful Blue. I used a scrap of paper from SU's Springtime Vintage DPS and created the large blue flowers using crinoline, tulle, Bashful Blue reinker and Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals Die (tutorial here). For the center of the flowers, I was happy to use some silver heart brads I've had forever. I coated the head with Crystal Effects and dipped the into SU's Baja Breeze glass glitter. The burlap was cut with a Sizzix die, the flourish with a Boss Kutz die. The mini ribbon roses in the upper right corner were hand folded using polyester twill. I'm very pleased with this card. I think it is just as sweet as can be and I'm so happy with the color - having moved on from purple!
Be sure to stop by Our Creative Corner to see what the rest of he team has made. We're so pleased that we have a fantastic guest designer Grace Nywening of Th-INK-ing of You, You'll be amazed and delighted with what she contributed to this challenge.
