Fancy a cuppa?

Ooooohhh yes please, I could just go a lovely afternoon tea with pretty cupcakes, little sandwiches and a pot of real tea! lol
You are all probably thinking Ive lost my marbles, but when I made this card today thats just what it made me think of, the pretty colours and teacups are just so lovely.
I've had this magnolia stamp for ages and have never used it, and when I was flicking through the magnolia ink magazine I saw a card made with the teacups all stacked up and it gave me an idea for this card. I even hunted out my heatgun and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder which I havent used for soooo long, it was fun. Ive used some pretty shabby chic cream butterflies on it too (yes Sara I will send you more!! lol)
Its a bit different from my normal cards as there are no coloured images on it SHOCK HORROR!! but Im very happy with it.
Hope you like it?

Beautiful card. I am just having lunch and now my healthy tuna sandwich doesn't seem as appealing. I want a pot of tea and cupcakes. I love the colours you have used they are so soft and pretty. The gold embossing just sets the whole thing off. Thanks for sharing.

Wow...yes, yes I would like a cuppa! But only if it looks just like this.
This is gorgeous and I love your stamping technique. Very detailed and beautiful. :D
Read your about me section and it made me smile and sad all at the same time. Your pictures of all your children are adorable and it's been a pleasure spending this time on your blog. I would love to come back and see what inspiration you have for me next time.
