High Hopes Summertime Teapot


I have made this card for my MIL for her birthday. Her favourite colour is lavender. The stamp is by High Hopes - "Summertime Teapot". The paper and brad are from the gorgeous new Laura Ashley range and can be purchased from Silly Monkey Crafts. The blooms, ribbons and buttons are from Rebecca's Scrumptious Stash Monthly Kit. The tag was sent to me from my very kind friend Heidi. The lettering is by K&Company. I coloured the image with my Prismacolour pencils with Sansador and paper stumps to blend. Also used the Twinkling H2O's which I just love!
