This week's Teapot Tuesday Challenge was to find Clue(s) for the age-old mystery of murder of Mr. Boddy.
What most people don't know is the scandal of the murder has overshadowed another scandal that took place at the mansion during that party -- Mrs. Peacock and Mr. Green spent the entire evening cutting the rug in the ballroom with each other, instead of their respective spouses. This picture (they appear to be doing the polka) was taken at the exact time the coroner thinks the murder took place, which at least frees Mrs. Peacock and Mr. Green from suspicion of murder, if not from the suspicions of those same respective spouses...
Layout is CPS130
Also for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #30, using pearls. I used the nifty black half pearls from Flourishes shop.
And it looks like it qualififes for DoubleDog Dare Challenge to use glamour girls as well.
This is my first tea party. How'd I do?

You done good! Welcome to the tea party ... scathingly scandalous story and great card. Watch out for Miss Scarlet ... she's been stirring up some serious trouble. Hope to see you at the party next week!

I'm so glad that you joined the teaparties. What a great card. I love the piercing along the vertical panel. Great job coloring. Your story is great!! I guess they should be thankful that the paparazzi were there sneaking around the manor to snap this photo so that their alibi for the murder is strong. I just hope they know good marriage counselors or good attorneys.

You did GREAT!!!! Welcome! How fun to have a new person to the teaparty! Your card is awesome and so is your story! They do look happy don't they...sorta overly so if you don't mind me saying....must be the sneakiness of the whole thing!
I would have come to greet you earlier but Inspector Clouseau hired a private investigator to take some pictures of these two, set the roll of film on the window sill and while he was carrying on about his sharp detective skills, he leaned against the window and out flew the film into the merky water below! Well, after diving in after it, I had to take him to the hospital and I just got back! Yikes!
So glad you could come to our party! We are making head-way here by the process of elimination! Your card rocks! Hope to see you next week!
