Tea Party!

Good Morning All! Well, I'm the hostess for another challenge over @ Our Creative Corner! And I thought how wonderful would it be to have some tea with some friends! So, that's the challenge this week. Get out your tea 'themed' stamp sets, doilies, and create a card to invite a friend over for tea, or to just celebrate the art of drinking tea!
Here is my card:
For this creation, yes, I used a bunch of different supplies. I wanted to create a card that wasn't too girly. But, still has a bit of sophistication. The pattern paper is Basic Grey. The solid cardstock is Stampin' Up! The crochet trim is Stampin' Up! and the doily is a Martha Stewart item. I used the 1 3/8" circle punch (Stampin' Up!) and the scallop circle punch (Stampin' Up!) to create the rolled flower. I added a half pearl (Stampin' Up!) to the center to give it some interest. After I adhered the panels to the front of the card, I stamped them with a flourish from Carte Postale (Stampin' Up!) in Basic Brown classic ink (Stampin' Up!).
Thank you for stopping by. I hope that you get an opportunity to play along! I can't wait to see what you create!

This card definitely has sophistication going for it! Love that doily die cut and the color palette you chose. Your tiny rolled flower and leaves are wonderful too. Another terrific challenge, Sharon. Everyone had great fun with this one!

Hope you are having a great weekend.
