Vintage teacups


I made this card for an order. I was told the recipient loved flowers and afternoon tea so this is what I cam up with using a precoloured digi from The Paper Shelter. The lace I found in my stash, the butterfly is Prima, flowers from Wild Orchid. I diecut the numbers using Tim Holtz die and the sentiment is a Die-versions corner die.  I also used some cheesecloth and distressed all the edges for a shabby chic look.

We are going into the city today as I have a haircut booked and hubby has an osteopath appointment as he has had some back pains for a few weeks. Lunch and some retail therapy will be included too.
