Hello Classy friends, Diane here today
with my "I "LOVE" Tea" card for our challenge this week
"Tea Party"!

I just love the pretty Spring colors of this card!
It was a little bit of fussing around with it,
but I think well worth the effort!!

Let me tell you how I made it.
I started by adhering Double sided adhesive Scor-tape sheets
to Pearlized Esse White Metallic card stock before I die cut.
I then placed my PoppyStamps Teapot Stack die on
and ran it through my Cuttlebug a couple of times using the
This gives you a nice sticky backing to adhere down to your card.
 I embossed a panel using the  Darice Doily Lace embossing folder.
then adhering the teapot die cut  to that.
Then I decided to get real creative, and picked out a few scrap pieces
of paper, adhered them the same as I did the die cut, to the Scor-tape sheet
and ran each color through my machine.
I carefully "picked" each piece out and adhered it in it's place.
so easy using one of the picks from the set!

Lastly, I added some flowers.  If you saw one of my previous posts
Botanical Wings die set, you will remember I cut several "extra"
flowers, thinking they would come in handy later.
Well, they certainly did!

I used 5 of the smaller flowers and using the Paper Blossom Tool Kit
and Paper Blossoms Craft Molding Mat, I formed my flowers.
The flowers were colored with Susan's Garden PanPastels coloring kit,
and finished off with Lavender Pearls.
The tiny Leaf Clusters are from Impression Obsession.

I encourage you to join in the challenge with us this week, 
we would love to have you!!
