Today's TeaPot destination is Dorothea - she will be celebrating her 81st birthday. She also has health concerns, and we hope to send her some cheer.
I used the DVine Swirls EF to reflect the design of the teapot. I also added a sticker made up of lots of tiny flowers to include an elegant floral greeting - all set for a day with the Women's Ministry group. Inside as part of the verse I included a few lines from "How Great Thou Art".
I used the sketch from Verve challenge #4 for September.
I used a shiny metallic pen to outline the floral image.
A challenge for anything: goes: http://stamp-n-doodle.blogspot.co.uk/
ETA: In order to provide full disclosure (LOL!!!) I should clarify - I did not cut the tiny flowers - for me, that just would not happen!!! They are all Sandylion stickers; the heart is a pre-formed shape and the other three are individual flowers.

Beautiful card, Dorothy...one that Dorothea is sure to love. Your sticker flowers are so pretty and used to best advantage with the stamped b'day greetings panel. Pretty shades of pink/mauve and dry embossing too.
