Damask Birthday SFYTT

I feel so bad that I wasn't able to participate in last week's SFYTT, but here I am this week with one of Jen's amazing sketches. I really like this week's sketch with all of the layers and focal oval. I decided to use one of my new nestabilities instead of an oval, but I think it works well with the sketch.
I needed a Birthday card to accompany the gift for the "Tea Party" my daughter is going to. Of course I needed to keep the theme consistent, so I pulled out the new PTI "Tea for Two" set and "Damask Designs". I ran out of Sweet Blush cardstock while working on my ensemble for the Papertrey Ink release, so I used SU! Blush Blossom. Can I just say that I like Sweet Blush so much better? I was pretty proud of myself that I used almost every last little scrap I had for that project.





I kept all of the details the same; swiss dot embossing folder, nestablities die, gem stickers, etc. I did however add a crown charm that I picked up from starlitstudio. I simply removed the hole at the top used for hanging by snipping it off with my craft and rubber scissors. I attached it with mini glue dots. I decided to use my ticket corner punch for some of the corners so there would be an extra place to add some more bling.

I used a marker to ink up the sentiment, leaving of the "To You" section because it made it too thick for the design.




I stamped the line art tea pot in the inside, added one of the small damask prints and then stamped the "Tea for two, Me and You" sentiment over the top. I thought it was a sweet little addition for the inside of the card, leaving enough room for my daughter's 5 year old large handwriting to fit on the inside. LOL! I am sure the party will be a hit!

Just loverly, Kelly! You and Amy are going to FORCE me to buy that Damask set, aren't you??? :) Guess I'd better to get used to a lot of PTI enabling from you... Not that I need any, mind you. HAD to have Pine's new All-Star sets this week (for those scrapbook pages I'm going to do for my oldest son's soccer & basketball photos... QUIT LAUGHING! I really will do that... someday! :))
