Out of my element for PCC

 Our challenge this week for Paper Cupcakes at our challenge blog is hosted by the lovely Gloria Westerman who is asking us to create a shape or die card with embossing or texture....and I will admit that I found this to be a true challenge as this is not something that I normally do. I found a download for a teapot on Splitcoast Stampers and after saving it, I resized it to fit in an A2 envelope and mirror imaged it so that I could score and fold it to be connected at the handle. I then handcut the teapot out.
This is such a beautiful image created by Nina...called Wildflower Bouquet. I can't wait to use in lots of different colors. Be sure and stop by the blog to check out all the other DT's creations and I hope you have time to play along with us this week. Thanks so much for stopping by....I always appreciate your sweet words.
