I've been itching to join this week's challenge at Less is More this week but, frustratingly, life hasn't gone as I planned it. However, I have managed to finish early today so, better late than never.
I love the idea of an old fashioned afternoon tea. You know the type of thing - pretty little cakes and sandwiches on colourful china. All dainty and nice (I can dream can't I). I bought the image from the digistamp boutique last week. I sort of fell into my basket when I was browsing! It wasn't the only one either. It was perfect for what I had in mind. I think I should mention at this point that this week's challenge is pastel colours. This is what I came up with.
I'm pleased with it. I hope you like it too. The photo doesn't show up the gemstones that well but I was looking for something to add a finishing touch and, in a totally serendipitous moment, found some pastel pink and green stones I didn't even know I had. I just embossed the panel across the middle, added the die cut frame and stuck the image on. I wish all my cards would come together as easily as that.
Thanks for reading.
