Friendship Warms the Heart

I am so excited, as I was able to get a few cards completed today and enter two of them into weekly challenges. My first two challenge entries as a new blogger!  I was inspired by the Monday Challenge #40 "It's Delicious" at The Craft Spot and this card is my finished piece of work.  I so wanted to use my Love You a Latte cartridge.  I choose to use the Teacup to create my card, which has a Victorian tea party theme, complete with dollies, roses, pearls and pretty pink sugar cookies.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

This is a 6 x 6 card

I used the following cartridges to create this card:
  • Love you a Latte <Teacup> and all layers 2-1/2"
  • Flower shoppe <Scallop1> 2"
  • Doodlecharms <Heart> 1-1/2" and shadow 1"
  • George and Basic Shapes <Circle> 5"
Other products used from my stash: fibers, adhesive pearls, heart brad, glitter, dollies

Note:  used desert sand ink from Close to my Heart to sponge around the edges after distressing the paper.  Also for the cookie edges to give it that baked look.

Shout Out to my husband, Kurt who is my photographer and always willing to take the photo's I need for my blog.  He is awesome!
Catch the Frenzy!
