Time for Tea

I go missing for ages then turn up two days running!
Had some 'me' time yesterday - chill out after a very busy couple of weeks - our holiday seems such a long time ago now!
So during my 'me' time I had a bit of a messy play in the craft space (I should have been doing the cleaning but hey - there's only us here! LOL).
A couple of inky things started then set aside, I mooched about in the paper mountain, pulled a few out and made two cards  mainly to satisfy my craving for frippery as I've been doing quite a bit of CAS lately!

The papers I think are from a Papermania pad? Anyway there's a couple more sheets now used up whoever made them!

The second paper layer was stitched onto the background. I added some cotton lace which for some reason reminded me of a tablecloth with it's pointed edge!
The image is of course from LOTV - love her turban (wonder if she's got a few rollers underneath?? LOL)
Machine stitched the main image onto some co-ordinating textured card and raised it up with 3d foam pads onto the paper doily and then fixed to the base card.
Dusty Concord DI used on the sentiment stamp.
Finished it off with some lilac shoestring ribbon which secures a little metal tea bag charm.
Inside co-ordinated to match (to use up ALL the paper!)

Challenges -
Use Your Stuff - Patterned Paper
Suzie Bees' - Layer It Up
