Taylored Expression August "Blast from the Past" Blog Hop

Happy Tuesday everyone!!  Hope you have had a good week so far!!  Today I am joining in on the Taylored Expression "Blast from the Past" blog hop....so let's just get started!!

Same as last month, I used the fabulous "CreativiTEA" set.  I just ADORE this set....so I use it as often as I can!  Here is my card!!
"Missing You" supplies: 
Cardstock: The Paper Company
Paper: Glitz Designs
Stamps: Taylored Expression (CreativiTEA
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: aqua & Chalk: pink pastel, creamy brown) 
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Flowers: Prima
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Circle Cutter: Creative Memories
Scalloped Die: Papertrey Ink
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Cut a large scallop to the left side of a paper block using the Cuttlebug and large scallop steel die.  Sand the edges of the scalloped paper block, and a pink damask paper block.  Adhere them together, and stitch along the seams.  Adhere the entire block to the front of a cream card base.  Cut a circle from cream cardstock and ink the edges.  Adhere the circle to the middle of the card, and stamp the sentiment directly to it.  Stamp the teapot to a scrap of cream cardstock and cut out.  Adhere directly above the sentiment, and accent with pearls.  Adhere a bow to the lower left corner, and accent with paper flowers.  

I used this fabulous sketch, designed by the lovely Sankari Wegman.   Isn't it fabulous!!!
 And last, but not least....be sure to check out all the other blog hoppers!  I can't wait to sit down with a cup of coffee and check out all the wonderful inspiration!  ♥♥♥ 
Until later,
~Lea
