More Tea Vicar?

Afternoon all!
How are we doing?
Operation Nursery is going rather well! I will do a seperate post for that later, wouldn't want to keep cluttering this one with photos of my sons room hahaha!

So my new craft room is slowly coming together, relocating was fun to begin with but trying to find new homes for things is diiiiiiifficult, and I downsized too!!

This card I have for you was inspired by a card from the amazing Lucy Abrams
She is such a talented card maker! I love her creations!

One of my work colleagues was going for tea at the ritz for her birthday and so I was asked to create a card on that theme and I came up with this:

This is an image from Pink Petticoat called Cake Stand which is teamed up with one of the sentiments from the set Sweet Treats.

The image is printed on to some pearlescent ivory card and coloured with brushmarkers. They've been finished off with lashings of glamourdust glitter and a cute little pearl and some silk ribbon.

I do love this stamp and can see many used for it!
Pink Petticoat is always awesome :)

As you know I use an awful lot of Liz's beautiful papers on my cards, so much so that my stacks of paper quite often get left neglected, but they are so pretty!

If you haven't visited Pink Petticoat before please do, there are some free gifts on the blog here plenty to whet the appetite..

I love the simplistic look of this card, definitely finding that Less Is More suits me and looks very elegant!

I hope you are all well and not too cold with the miserable winter weather! Roll on spring!

I've still got a few more cards lined up to show you, but i'll spread these out over the week.

Lots of Love
