The Shabby Tea Room

This pretty little card was inspired by the following teapot image at The Shabby Tea Room.  The Shabby Tea Room is a newer challenge blog with some great ideas and inspiration. The owner also sells some really beautful vinatage ribbon on Etsy that I plan on ordering sometime in the near future. I used an older SU! set, I think it's called Toile Flowers or something thereabouts, for the image. The image was embossed and colored with Copic Markers and though it's hard to see from the picture, the two flowers were stamed a second time, colored, cut out, and mounted using dimesionals for some "pop"! The patterned paper comes form SEI's Juliette and Chocolate Collections. Both lines are gorgeous!

Isn't this a lovely teapot? One of my nightly rituals af ter the kids go to sleep, is a cup of tea in one of my three favorite tea cups. My grandmother collected them and now I'm following in her footsteps... Miss you grandma...
