Thinking of you...and some news....

Hi!

I have a quick share today~

I started this card by taking a piece of textured blue cardstock by Bazzil and layering on my Kraft card base. Dipping into my Lost and Found Portobello Road papers by My Mind's Eye I added a vintage book print layer to the blue.  I then hand-cut a pennant from the same collection adding it to the lower half of my card face dressing it up with some pearls.  Just above the hand-cut pennant a cut doily was adhered. A length of seam binding ribbon was added horizontally across my card front and tied in a fussy bow and embellished with some twine and a corduroy button.
A tag was created and stamped with flourishes from Waltzingmouse Stamps and sentiment from Papertrey Ink. A metal key was applied as a decorative embellishment as inspired by the Color Combo Galore Photograph (see Below).  For a further decorative touch, more pearls were added to dress up this fancy little tag.  Lastly, two yellow gingham, checked tea cups were stacked and added to the card front again drawing inspiration from the photograph. Something about doilies and tea cups just seem to go together don't you think?

As mentioned, my inspiration for this card comes from Color Combination Galore.

The Ribbon Carousel has an Anything Goes Challenge So I am joining the fun!
***Edit to note that I just woke up this Friday Morning to find that I am The Feature Me Friday Artist over at The Kraft Journal today!!! A big WooHoo! I am so honored!  If you have a minute, please stop by The Kraft Journal.

I hope you have a lovely day! Thanks for peeking!
