What a fun challenge! This is my first Teapot Tuesday card, and I was able to make this for EPEC (extra points for extra cookies!).
I loved making this card with the always beautiful, Always Thankful, stamp set. The image was watercolored with an aquapainter and SU inks. The edges of the vanilla and DSP panels were lightly sponged. These were matted and then glued down. I stamped an extra set of the wheat stalks, watercolored them, cut 'em out and glued them on top of the original image to add that little extra dimension and have a couple of the wheat sprays on top of the sentiment. Lastly I added little 1/8" circle punch-outs from black cardstock to make faux brads.
Thanks for looking at my challenge card today!

Oh my goodness! What a wonderful card! See those little black and white polka dots...they look like the goosebumps I get when looking at this awesome card! I love it, a wonderful card for your first teaparty!
Welcome, glad you are here....your card is wonderful, so cool....I must warn you...one of the rowdy teapotters will probably come up to you and say....I will trade you, your awesome card for these yummy cookies....but when you agree (the cookies are awesome!), they will grab your card and run off with BOTH THE COOKIES AND THE CARD! Just sayin.......
Welcome...I hope you will continue coming...even after being *cheated* by a Teapotter! Snort!
