Tea for Two

Hello... hope you're all well!

At Cupcake Craft Challenge we have a new challenge for you this week, and my talented teamie Keely has chosen the theme Sewing Box... that means you have to use something you'd find in a sewing box on your creations. For my DT card I've used thread, seam binding and a button... and I've stitched the card with my sewing machine. I went for a soft, pastel look, with pretty lace, pearls and flowers... my mam loved it :)

Here's a little close up of the image... from Lily of the Valley...

Our sponsors at Cupcake this week are Cuddly Buddly, who are giving away a £10 gift voucher to the lucky winner and Simon Says Stamp, who are giving away a $20 gift certificate... fab eh?! Please take the time to pop by the Cupcake blog to take a look at the other DT girls' creations... they've done a super job as usual! If you have a minute to spare, please leave a comment, we appreciate it!

Hugs, Shelly x

Hi Shelly,
Adorable card. I'm a pastel girl myself, so this is right up my street. Love the image, which you've colored beautifully and all the details. Such wonderful harmony in this card. Thanks for joining in with the Truily Scrumptious' lace challenge.
