Off to Ransom, PA with cards to bring cheer to Brenda who survived a terrible head-on crash. Fran(philsmom) has written a wonderful story to go with this week's teapot. Read it HERE.
I based my card on the teapot with its blue flowers and flourishes and yellow butterflies. Next, to give credit where credit is due: My coloring of this image is a CASE of Reddyisco's beautiful CARD that she gifted to me. It truly was an inspiration. Hope Brenda likes my version as much as I love Jo's.

Oh my, Sallie, a great take on the elegant teapot, I can see it straight away. I have to learn to look at teapot BEFORE I make my cards, not after!! Did you use the yellow Glaze pen on the flower centres?

Sallie, this is beautiful. I love the additional embossed/lightly sponged double border, and your butterflies not only add such dimension to the card, it really brings out the center of those beautifully colored/shaded flowers. Stunning card, and another fave.

Sweet Sallie - I LOVE your version of Jo's wonderful card which was a treat as well!! Blue is one of my favorite colors to work with and you have done some marvelous coloring on those pretty flowers - offseting the blues with those cheerful yellow butterflies was sheer genius - Brenda is going to love this card!!
