Time for Tea

Hi folks, how's your weekend going? Its very quiet and peaceful here as DS has gone away with his friends for a few days, in fact its almost too quiet . I shouldn't complain as he'll be home tomorrow with piles of washing lol. Anyway todays card is for the progressive challenge over at Crafters Digital Art Centre . There are some gorgeous images and i've coloured a few of them but this was the first chance i've had to make a card. 

The gorgeous teapot image is by Sandy Samples and is coloured with promarkers. I  love fuschias, they are one of my favourite flowers and always make me think of summer so I couldn't resist this lovely teapot. Sadly all the fuschias in my garden bit the dust in the bad weather :-(.
It took ages to get the creamy background colour I wanted and I carefully wrote down which promarkers I used and guess what ..... lost the list! I've used spun sugar distress ink around the image and matted it on some dark cream card. The bp is Prima Madeline and the pearls, ribbon and lace are from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft us Crazy: anything goes
Crafty Sentiments: no sentiment
Fussy and Fancy: 3 or more of your favourite embellishments
Jellypark: favourite embellishments
Papertake Weekly: Bingo challenge (my line is pearls, ribbon and freespace)
Simon Says Stamp: food and drink

Thanks for visiting today
