It's Tea Time ...

Hello my friends!  
Hope your Thursday is off to a great start!
I discovered I had a 'free' blog day today, so I decided to join in one of the challenges that has always inspired my 'vintage side'!  And, that is the Shabby Tea Room Challenge Blog!
This is their photo inspiration ...
and, we are to use Pink, Black, Pearls and Flowers on our creations.

I hope you're not tired of seeing Tri-Shutter (fancy fold) cards from me because there are several I need/want to create for my upcoming Fall Craft Shows and by playing the challenges using this fold, it just helps me be that much further ahead of what I'll be needing!


So here ya go ... my creation for the challenge is 'another' tri shutter fold creation ... hope you like it!

I have several tri-shutter card bases cut/scored and it just so happened there was a light pink one in the stack ... so THAT was my starting point.  All product used on this card will be shared at the end of my post.  I have had this Elizabeth Craft (#714) teapot/cups die set for quite some time now and today they just screamed out for me to use them. 
They are actually an 'outline' set so once I die cut them on Pink Pirouette paper, I glued them down to a piece of black cardstock using E6000 spray adhesive and fussy cut them out with my Fiskars swivel craft knife.  There is probably a matching 'solid' die set ... I really need to look into that!  LOL!

I really like how the Eucalyptus Stickles pops on these die cuts ... so pretty IRL!
I hope you've found a fun challenge to join in today to express YOUR style!
I must have an OLD SOUL because Vintage design really speaks to me!

Hopefully I can find some other fun challenges to share my card in today ...
Just Inspirational Challenge - Pearls and Lace
Card Mania Challenge - Birthday Party
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Fussy Cutting
Little Red Wagon - Happy Birthday
Scrapper's Delight - Anything Goes with Die Cuts

Lots to get done so I'd better make this short & sweet!

Love the touches of orange on this, and the green glitter, as they really stand out against the fabulous monochromatic background. The design itself is perfect for our fancy folds challenge
