Tea & Biscuits

Soooo, another day with two posts - what a lucky set of readers you are!

As you can probably guess, this is to enter a few challenges.  This card will be entered into:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday (
The Pink Elephant ( - where the theme is punches and dies
Papertake Weekly ( - where the theme is flower power
Lili's Little Fairies ( - where the theme is Food Glorious Food

This is my card:

I made this for my niece to give to her sister for her birthday in two weeks.  It is made using a Lili of the Valley mini masterpiece, which I saw and couldn't resist as it looks just like my nieces, except for the fact that they are being nice to each other, which is a very rare occurrence with my nieces.  Anyway, I cut it into a circle and attached it to a die-cut scalloped circle which matched one of the backing papers.

I followed the sketch on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  The papers are a mix from various packs - the brown textured paper is from my stash, the glittery flower paper is from a Springtime paper pack, the other flowery paper is from a freebie pack that came with Cardmaking & Papercraft back in summer and the other two are from a Boofle paper pack.  I wrapped the whole thing with some blue ricrac before attaching the image

This is the sketch I used

To finish, I coloured a 'sister' peel off blue and attached it to a piece of plain white card, which I then attached to the bottom right of the card.  I then put together a flower from various die-cut flowers and finished it with a blue gem.

Et voila!

One card.  I hope my little rat bag likes it.  More cards will be to follow at the weekend.

Happy Crafting!
