A Convivial Tea Party Anyone?

Hello delightful friends and family,
So, I've pulled out my Thesaurus to find as many synonyms for a word that I promised I wouldn't use in this post! (check the end of the last post, if you are confused!)
So, here goes.... Well, todays card gave so much pleasure in making! What a great challenge for Sketch Tuesday, it was so entertaining! I love this color combo for the Color Monday challenge of pink and gray (thanks to Miss Boo). I hope you are enjoying some creative inspiration and will find amusement in playing along with us at Christian Paper Crafts. Oh my, this verbage is so not me! So, lets just get on with the card details!
Here is the fabulous sketch from Jennipher (so many possibilities):

CPC-CM73 and CPC-ST-73

I kept my card very true to the sketch, but you could easily flip it. You'll have to click to enlarge to see the stitching (I'm getting braver about that and my machine is cooperating nicely!)It helps to thread the machine correctly! (Ha!) Do you like my teapot, isn't it the cutest! I paper pieced it and I love how it worked out, I just stamped it on the patten paper then carefully cut it out! I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 9 to cut out the gray cardstock, then embossed it, then keeping the die in place, inked the edges uses a blending tool by Inkessentials before stamping the label (TE) and placing the teapot. I added pearls (ColorStories) to the top corner as an embellishment to finish it off.
The pattern paper is DCWV Nana's Nursery (girl), the gray is DCWV pastel cardstock, the base of the card is SU! white cardstock. Stamps: Taylored Expressions CreativiTea set (I LOVE THIS SET), Inks: Memento, rich cocoa ink for stamping and Distress Ink, worn lipstick for blending.

Hope your week is convivial!! I told you I got my thesaurus out. Isn't this enjoyable?

Thanks for looking and I can't wait to read your pleasant, witty and delightful comments!
