Tea Time

This weeks color challenge at CR84FN is to use yellow, craft and neutral as the main colors. I usually spend too much time trying to figure out what image I'm going to use. After that is decided then I have to plan a layout and last but hardest (for me).....find the right papers! YUCK. This week when I saw that "yellow" was one of the colors, the first thing that came to mind was a "lemon". So I went with that thought and this is the card.



The tea cup, lemon and verse are from MTME, script is from PTI and lemon on background is a Stampendous stamp. The script and green stripes on the tea cup were stamped with Vivid Olive Green, the pearls are Recollections, ribbon from JoAnn's, and tiny tag is a Sizzix die.

This is the photo that was used to create my card. Please check out the inspirational quote, then add........



.........or get out some paper and ink and start stamping!

I'm posting 3 cards early this week since I was so late last week. Does that even things out?

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
