TEA AND CAKE CHALLENGE
Hi and good morning to all my lovely blog friends.
THANK YOU for your lovely comments yesterday, especially
the wonderful ones on my sister's jewellery making skills.
I know she is very pleased with them so thank you on her behalf.
Well it's Saturday again, and hasn't this week gone by very quick.
Or is it just me slowing down because of my age. lol.
My card today is one I made yesterday for the Tea and Cake
Challenge at The Emergency Crafters.
The card is an 8x8 matted and layered with aubergine card stock,
and some glitter paper I bought from C and C quite a few years ago. The check and the stripe paper were a freebie with a card
making magazine. I put some thick purple ribbon with lace on top
in the centre. The lace has holes in the centre so I threaded another
slightly different colour narrow ribbon through it. The Birthday
Cake digi image is from The Scrapbook Society. The tea cup digi
image is a freebie off the internet. They are both coloured in with
Promarkers, then I glittered round the images with glitter glue.
Then I put glue and crystal glitter on the flowers and candles.
I made a little flower arrangement with cherry blossoms from
WOC and some from my stash. I added a lacy bow and some flat back flower pearls from my stash also, and oh I nearly forgot the
design round the oval image is the centre of the Spellbinders Ornate Cross, cut in half and glued to the back to give it a pretty
I hope you like my entry and thank you for visiting me again.
Have a great crafty Bank Holiday weekend everyone,
Lots of crafty love. Jenny Lawrence.
