Time for Tea

Has been a bright day here all day but in the last hour the rain has arrived! It's gone a bit cold too..... tomorrow is supposed to be a reasonably dry day so hopefully will be able to get outside and clear up some of the leaves. Fast as you clear they drop more but really need to keep on top of it!

Isn't this LOTV image yummy?! Love these 'big hats' girlies and so after all the recent CAS cards I decided to go a bit more fussy!
The backing papers are from TLC and I printed them onto linen textured card. they're a vibrant blue in real life!

Stitched and distressed all the edges and added some white lace from my stash.

I cut out a flower from some more lace and secured the blue paper flower onto it with a pearl brad, then popped it all onto a large white satin bow. Decorated it with a die cut flourish, some crystal leaf stems and two pearls in the top right.

The flower at the top is again pieced together using a pearl brad and to finish the whole thing I put on the pretty glass and silver metal teapot charm.
The inside is also decorated with the same papers.
