Taylored Expression "Blast from the Past" Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone!!  I hope that your day is going well so far!  I am joining in on the Taylored Expression "Blast from the Past" blog hop fun this month...and I loved breaking out TE stamps for it!!  I am also entering it into the "Shabby & Vintage" Moxie Fab challenge! So....let's get right to it!!  Here is my card for the hop!
"Time for Tea" supplies: 
Stamps: Taylored Expressions (CreativiTEA set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: chestnut & Chalk: ice blue) 
Cardstock: The Paper Company
Paper: My Mind's Eye
Paper Frill: Doodlebug Designs
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Lace: vintage craft supply
Flowers: Prima
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression by Provo Craft
Diecut Cartridge: Storybook by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold cream cardstock in half to make card base.  Adhere a block of blue flocked dot paper to the front of the card.  Add a blue paper frill to a brown damask paper block, and adhere to the left side of the card.  Layer lace and ribbon over top of the seam on that paper block.  Cut the scalloped circle at 2 1/2" inches from patterned paper using the Cricut Expression and the Storybook cartridge.  Adhere it to the lower right corner of the card.  Tie a bow from brown dotted ribbon, and adhere to the upper right part of the scalloped circle.  Cut a circle at 2" from cream cardstock and ink the edges.  Stamp the sentiment to the bottom and adhere to the middle of the scalloped circle using dimensional adhesive.  Stamp the teapot to cream cardstock and cut out.  Adhere the teapot off center to the sentiment circle, and accent with pearls.  Add two cream paper flowers to the middle of the bow. 

We were given a sketch by Sankari Wegman that we could use if we wanted to...and you all know me!  I love a good sketch...so of course, I used it.  Here is the sketch so you can try it out if you like!! 
And don't forget to check out the rest of the "Blast from the Past" blog hop creations as well...it is sure to be a treat!! ♥♥♥ 
I hope that you have a really wonderful day!!  

Until later,
~Lea
