Greetings stampers, today is the teapot challenge and the teaparty is in honor of my punchie friend's (nwilliams6) Mom Sara. Just had to come out of the woodwork to make a card to send.
I chose the "Love" theme as Sara and Leavie are very much in love. Nothing like an arrangement of roses for Valentine's day to turn on the Romance, add a few pearls, and some frilly doilies and you have yourself a classic Valentine. Oh, don't forget the sparkle, we always have to have some sparklies to turn on the festive feel!
Here are the dies I used:
Marianne-Creatables Die-Anja's Squares (It was a blast to cut and layer these)
Joy Crafts Corner Fleur De Lys
Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms
Spellbinder Spiral Blossoms One
Thanks so much for taking a peek. I sure do appreciate it. See you in the gallery.

Oh, Carol, this is like one of those nostalgic old fashioned Valentines from yesteryear - except you have the vision and magic fingers to make it so romantic and frilly - TODAY!
I know Nancy's Mom and Dad are going to love this look and appreciate all the time it took to make it so beautiful!

Sara will flip over this beauty, Carol! I know I would. Those roses are spectacular. Thanks to you and Marie for cluing me in about these cards for Nancy's mom and step-dad.

Oh, wow, another heavenly creation! This is just chock-full of glamour and romance. I love those gorgeous roses in the center and the pearls, lacey edges, and sparkle highlight all the loving detail you always put into your cards. So pretty.
