Thanks for Tea!

This is a rather belated 'Thank You' card for 2 rather lovely & very generous ladies I met at the NEC who bought me my tea. Actually tea is a massive understatement, but it fits better with the image on my card if I call it that!

I'm entering it into this weeks LOTV challenge where the theme is 'Glitter & Glitz'. To be fair there may not be enough of either on this card for it to qualify & what there is, the photos have not picked up very well. I glittered round the image & the sentiment, added a sprinkling to the flowers on her hat & drenched the flowers in the stuff!

Adorable little Rosie is coloured with my long neglected Distress Inks & if you look really hard, you can just about see I added Glossy Accents to the crockery. The design paper is from Papermania & the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I based my layout on this weeks fab sketch at Cute Card Thursday & the colour scheme was chosen to fit with gorgeous theme at Colour Create of  Robin's Egg blue, Seafoam green & cream.

So there you go! Hope you like her. Thanks so much for looking.

Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Hi Andie! Was really touched by the message you left me yesterday - thanks so much for your words of support :) Can I also say that Rosie is coloured to absolute perfection, the shading & highlights, all the little touches, just amazing...
