Hello Friend...

Hi there!

Are you having a great weekend so far?  I certainly hope that you are!  I just want to share with you a card I made for the challenge over at The Ribbon Reel.  Here is the lovely inspiration photo we were to follow...
As you can see by the lovely photo, I just couldn't resist playing along.  We were to follow the colors of the photo and use ribbon, lace, twine, and flowers.  The tea pots and tea cup are so pretty!
 I used one of my favorite paper lines, which is My Mind's Eye(Sky's the Limit) for the tea cup.  The tea cup stamp is from Waltzing Mouse.  I went a step further and embossed the rim with gold embossing powder.  A white doily and gold doily were placed behind the cup.  I added gold buttons from my stash.  Pearls and flowers were added.  The sweet little tag is from Paper Sweeties from the stamp set Little Wishes.  

Ok friends, I'm going to go out and enjoy some of the lovely sunshine we are having today.  I need to read my book that I started months ago.:-)  If you know any good summer reads, let me know.  I want to take along a couple of good books when we go on vacation soon.  Take care and thank you for stopping by, hugs!
