Tea for You and Me! :)

Coffee of the Day - Hazelnut

A brand new challenge with Isabella's Sketchbook! wooo hooooo! I so love her beautiful images! and the challenge this week is a neat one - use the colors of her logo - one, two, or all on your creation. Remember to use one of her pretty images, too, and you could win 2 digis of your choice from her store plus a special blog badge!

For my card, I tried to incorporate as many of those gorgeous colors as I could. I love this tea pot digi, too, so printed it out to color. I added dots of perfect pearls to the tea pot for some pretty shine. The papers are a hodge podge of some I had around. I had seen a neat card done using alternating scallops on Leigh O'Brien's blog a while back and thought I would try it out here. I love the look and will most definitely do it again! I added some fun May Arts ruffled ribbon and a vintage millinery flower. A few vintage buttons complete the card.

Please be sure to check out what the other DT members have done. You will be amazed I am sure! and play along! it is great fun, as you well know!

This teapot is just too cute and what a wonderful job you have done bringing it to life with your coloring. Wonderful job on the color challenge this week. I really love the scalloped bottom section!

Hope you are having a good day!

This is so pretty. I love the flower and the scallops but are you sure there isn't coffee lurking in that pot:)

What a lovely card! I really like how you layered the scalloped edges at the bottom, offsetting them, I will be trying that technique!

Jennifer this is beautiful! The scalloped edges are a great idea.
You've been quiet lately, I hope are feeling a bit better. And I hope you are taking all your meds like a good girl! Viv xx
