52 Cards Wk18: time for tea?

For week 18 of the 52 Cards challenge Nat asked us to take inspiration from this picture 
I decided to take inspiration from the plates on the wall. First of all I thought I would just punch some circles, but then I remembered I had the saucer paper from Maggie Holmes Flea Market. This is a lovely paper but I admit I was unsure how I would use it on a layout. Thinking then how I would use it on a card tea cups came to mind. I found a template of a teapot and cup in an old magazine and so made this card
I chose a paper which looked most like a chintz patterned teacup and outlined them with a black marker to make them stand out. I added a doily cos let's face it they go hand in hand with tea parties! 


  1. Love the patterned paper teapot and cup and the doily, of course!

  2. Love that card, great take on the challenge
