So...why not create something bright and cheerful to keep my mind off of things. I have a few Birthdays coming up in the next few days, so I thought I would be prepared and get everything done. I was perusing my newest copy of "Pottery Barn Kids" magazine and fell in love with a bedroom set that incorporated some tea pots. I knew immediately that I wanted to try and recreate the feeling onto a card. I chose to use one of my favorite sets, Tea For Two. The patterns of the fabric were fun and flowery and I knew right away that this Making Memories paper from last Spring called "Flower Patch" would be the perfect fit.
I had originally started making this card for my daughter's friend, who's birthday party is this Saturday, but the more I worked on it, the more I thought I might give it to my friend who's birthday is Tuesday. Hmmmm.....decisions, decisions. It definitely has a "little girl" feel to it, but I think all of us are kids at heart, deep down.
The sentiment is from another PTI set called, BirthdayBasics which is another one of my "Go-To" sets.
I stamped the Tea Pot twice so that I could layer them like the tea pots in the magazine. I also made a mat layer using my Nestabilities as well as the ribbon slider. As usual, I needed some glitter, ribbon, buttons, sewing and scallops to finish it off. This card is just what the Doctor ordered and now my mind is swimming with ideas for accompanying gifts, either for my friend or my daughter's friend. Hmmm...I think trip to the quilt shop is in order! Thanks for fluttering by!
