There is an intricate version and CAS version so it will be easy for anyone to play
I used some linen fabric textured paper I've been hoarding forever waiting for the right card to use it on. I thought it went so well with Priscilla's beautiful teapot image. I have a "thing" for teapots as my mother is British and she collects them.
I also used some beautiful shiny pearl linen card stock and gold edged ribbon from The Paper Temptress found here:
The gold trim on the sides of the image panel was given to me from Priscilla. It was the last of it. I was able to use it on 2 cards.
I used the SU Teahouse background stamp behind the image and embossed it with the Fleur De Lis ef. Added some vintage buttons, gold pearls and paper piercing. There's also gold stickles added to the teapot and crystal effects on the flowers and leaves.
Thanks SO MUCH for taking a look and hope you have a wonderful week.
I just realized I could use this for the StampinB challenge to use a background stamp. Mine is behind the image, but hard to see!
PT: Yikes, not a one, unless the paper piercing is counted!!

Pamzi this is awesome. I am in love with that paper...it is perfect with the teapot. And is that glitter I see at the bottom of the teapot....I really love the way that looks...just fabulous. All your corner treatments are exquisite and add to the vintage look of this stunning creation. Beautiful work!

Beautiful! Love the teapot image and everything else you used really compliments the image including the beautiful gold trim, that pretty ribbon, the rose charm, the gold pearls, the papers, etc. Now we just need some fruitcake or crumpets to go with the tea! I use to collect teapots - lost a ton of them in a move and haven't had the heart to collect more since.
Great job as always Fruitcake - I love your MMSC cards (actually, I love all your cards but you know what I mean).

Fruitcake, I'm truly in awe of this one, girl. I cant believe all the textures you've got goin' on here. So much too look at and appreciate I must say. I see you'ved used a scor pal for you top panel finished with Priscilla's ribbon. Your faux stitching,piercing and glitter are all just fabulous on this teapot. Reminds me of what I used to think only rich people would use. Very pretty card with lots of wonderful embellishments. Saweet!
