This week's tea party is for a real estate agent who's health isn't doing well. You can read more about her story on the Teapot Tuesday Challenge.
I made my card using the brick wall technique with a garden in front of it, because what is a cottage without a garden? The Iris and Narcissus are from a retired stamp set from SU called Long-Stemmed and the smaller flowers and leaves are from a new SU stamp set called Baby Blossoms. The butterflies are from a generic set (not sure where from). I colored them with Copics and then used Diamond Stickles on them to make them shine. The label is from SB and sentiment from SU. The red was run through a CB folder. This was really fun to do, but time consuming.
Thanks for looking!

Well, one look at your card and I knew you did a technique! Pretty smart of me, huh! Ha! This is so cool...what a wonderful flower garden for our cottage! As soon as we find that cottage, we can install your garden and life will be good for Realtor Rose......Thanks for doing your share of the landscaping!
Charlotte will be tickled to get this....it's so cool, like tile! I am glad you had fun doing it!

If each house or cottage or lighthouse that is created had this as its scenic view . . . wow! Beautiful card - love your colouring and your mixed bouquet! The amount of work is obvious and we can only create these beauties 'cause we love it so much! Great card!
