Tea angels

Good morning, everyone!! I hope you're all having a wonderful week! Mine is flying by, as always. I've had very little me time & it's taken me since Sunday night to finish this card!!



I just had to play along with the sketch on the Truly Scrumptious blog from last week. After playing with all the new High Hopes images, I decided to use an older one, Tea Angels, which is actually new to me. I ordered it with the last batch...when I ordered all the other angels, lol. As much as I loooooooovvveeeeee all the new images, I still love the older ones as well. Have I mentioned lately how blessed I am to be on this design team??

Anyway....so I followed the TS sketch.....although it's a bit off. That yellow layer under the image is wider than it should be, but that's ok because it shows more of the YUMMY K&CO paper. OMG!!! All these papers are from the Wild Raspberry pad & I love each & every one of them. So much so.....that I'm going to buy a few more pads. I think they're even on sale this week at Michael's!! I matted all my layers with Bazzill Bling Red Carpet...one of my very favorite colors of Bling. I used a bunch of punches to make the flower, & of course the Martha branch punch, which I seem to use on every card. I added rhinestones in the corners & on the flower to give it some added oomph. The image is colored with Prismas & gamsol, & I used my Spica clear glitter pen on the angels flowers on their hats, Dazzling Diamonds glitter on their wings & I clear embossed the tea set. It took me a while to finish this card, but I do like how it turned out!




Here's a close up of the sweet angels!

I really wanted to start another card, & use this week's sketch challenge on SCS. But my kids get out of school early today.....in fact, they'll be home in just a couple of hours, & I still have errands to run, so I guess I'll have to play later. Tomorrow I'm working & Matthew & I have Scouts tomorrow night, & Friday hubby is going back to the hospital for some tests.....hopefully I can squeeze in some more me time somewhere in there!!! Have a great day & thanks for visiting!!
