CQC85....

An interesting color combo today from ColourQ.  I almost passed it up, but I just have to give it a try and see what I could come up with for a card.  To help me along I combined ColourQ with the current Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge to make a project using a teapot or teacup.    So... I reached for my Taylored Expressions Creativi-TEA set and two different Waltzingmouse sets:  Victorian Frippery & Large Doily.   The other day I made a card where I used the border stamp from Victorian Frippery to create a layered border.   This time I stamped the border along one side of the card base using SU!'s Chocolate Chip ink.  I stamped the border again on a 1 1/2 strip of white cardstock and then trimmed it out as shown.  I really quite like the look of the trimmed out border image.  The teapot was stamped using SU!'s Groovy Guava, a peachy color similar to Peach Parfait.  One of the doily images was stamped using grey in and then diecut.  A scalloped circle was diecut from Sahara Sand cardstock as a mat.  The ribbon is PTI's Melon Berry double stitched.  The whole thing was finished with a rolled rose made from white felt.



Thanks for taking a peek...
