Mojo Monday 97

I'm really enjoying playing around with challenges lately (you might have noticed, LOL) so while my desk was still in a mess I thought I'd have a go at the latest Mojo Monday challenge (click on the link to view the other entries). Here is the sketch:

And here is my interpretation of it.

As you can see, I've used another of the Papertrey Ink (PTI) 'Tea for Two' stamps. This one is a plain outline, perfect for paper piecing. Aren't these papers just beautiful? I first saw them used on Splitcoast & fell in love with them. I even sent a message to SU Australia pleading to please bring them out in a mini-catalogue. How excited was I when the catty came out & the papers were there? I think the floral makes the teapot look a bit like porcelain. Making this card made me realise that i really need to get the 'Photo Corners' punch (p152 IB&C), I cut these out by hand & it took more time & effort than I expected, lots of measuring. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with the card, mainly because I just love seeing these papers!

Anyway, I better go and get ready, need to get a gift for the friend who I made the card for in the previous post. Debating whether to buy something or make her a necklace. She looks fabulous in blue, so might go with the jewellery idea. Thanks for visiting,

PS I didn't realise how much this was like Lee-Anne's card until I'd made it.
