This week it's Tickle a Teapotter week! This is where we do an exchange with a fellow Teapotter, not knowing who we will receive from until it's in our hands.
Our them teapot this week was a set, actually. A beautiful set with lavender bunches, or is it asparagus spears? Well, I went with lavender bunches. I have 4 of these Karen Lockhart vegetable dress stamps, two are used on this card. I will also be sending stamped images to whomever I get to tickle.
Part of this challenge was to use a circle or circles. Let me see, I have 5 circles on this card. Now if you count the half pearls, there's 11.
I did a little embroidery on the top circles, as I didn't want to cover the image, but frame it.
So for whomever I get to Tickle, this card is for you!

I think we both thought lavender in the exact same shade. I have a couple of those vegetable couturier stamps as well but I have carrots and I would have bought lavender if I'd seen that first. Beautifully done.

Oh gosh, you most certainly get extra extra cookies for this round beauty! I can't believe you had such a perfect stamp, it suits the feel of the tea set perfectly.
Lavender or Asparagus? Hmmm, it's bit too pink to be any lavender I've ever scene, but if you look at the gallery for TPT10, you'll see that nobody was sure way back then either :D, and even now that I have it sitting here I still don't know what it's meant to be.
I almost feel I can smell lavender as I look at your lovely card.

Oh, my gosh, Jennifer! That dress is to die for (I want one of them to wear to the ball!) And your circle die looks amazing, but that embroidery is what really stands out, so I will say it's outstanding! You knocked yourself out this week~
