Afternoon Tea at TMITA


I love the images in this digital from Nina's store at Paper Cupcakes and is what I used for my Magical Monday post this week. Melanie has created a sketch for our challenge this week using any acquired image from Paper Cupcakes and I hope that all of you will give this a go! I used an ivory for my card base and some of my retired stash of Stampin' Up's dp Berry Bliss. The images in "Afternoon Tea" are colored with Memento New Sprout, Angel Pink, Vivid Tea Rose and SU Creamy Caramel. I love these Long Scalloped Rectangle nesties that I found at the stamping show in NC...and they were half price, gotta love that! I wish you could see the ribbon better as it is a beautiful pink with small flowers and vines. I sponged around all the images and use some stardust from my Spica gel pen to highlight the centers of the flowers.
Please join us for the challenge this week and remember that coming the last of the month is some great new Fall images from Nina. We will be showcasing them on the last Monday of September and you know that you want to see them.
I hope this is a great start to your week. I am sorry to be MIA this week-end, but I have had a really bad headache and couldn't do much but keep my eyes closed and rest.
Take care and talk with you soon!
