Afternoon Tea

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.
