Floral teacup for TMITA


Good Monday Morning!!
Hope that everyone has had a great week-end and is ready for the next challenge at There's Magic in the Air . It's Amber's turn to host this week and our challenge is to use any image by Paper Cupcakes and at least 3 patterned papers. I decided to use Nina's image Floral Teacup which is one of my favorites. I also used some of my favorite designer paper by K&Co Ancestry.com. which is double sided. I printed the image on another piece of dp which I have had for years and not sure who it is by. It has a very soft look with skeleton leaves and a faint floral pattern. I mounted my papers on a card base of SU blue bayou and tan. I just softly colored the flowers in the teacup with SU blue bayou, certainly celery and going gray. I love this copper ribbon and think it gave it the perfect accent with the colors in the papers. I hope you will enjoy it and leave me a comment. Also check out some of the images at Paper Cupcakes....over the next few weeks I will be showcasing some of my favorites.
This is the inside of my card. I left it sentiment free on purpose since sometimes I just want a card that I can write a message in and send for no special reason.



I want to remind everyone that our blog hop starts August 11....please be sure and stop by and look at the new releases and leave comments. Nina has some goodies to win! I can't wait to show you the one that I have used on my card...wish I could tell you more, but you will just have to wait until the 11th.
This week Nina is giving away these goodies to our winner...so get your images out and make a card and link it back to the challenge blog here .

Patti, this card is just stunning and goreous and so clean looking. I just love how you used a dp for the image and colored it awe so lightly to just give it a hint of color. Your dp are just lovely and your copper ribbon is stunning and the perfect finishing touch! Beautifully done!
