Pink Polka Dots

Happy Thursday all!
I hope you`re all having a lovely day and looking forward to the bank holiday weekend. I know I am  :)


 The inspiration for The Shabby Tea Room 
challenge this week is  a tea party theme, polka dots or both. They have given us this piccy to help.
Now I don`t do a lot of cute cards but as soon as I saw these gorgeous pink polka dots it just screamed cute to me. Having a lack of cute stamps didn`t help but on Sunday last we had a papercrafting event here in Hull and Alan treated me to two stamps, one of which is a beautiful Sugar Nellie stamp. This is the card I made with the stamp and the one I am submitting to the Shabby Tea Room challenge.
 Isn`t she absolutely gorgeous?
The stamp is called Flowers and is by Elisabeth Bell and I think I`m in love with her. I might just have to treat myself to some of her sisters.

I used Pink Petticoat Dots for my backing paper mounted on to some pale green card.
The image is coloured with watercolour pencils and I`ve added some Glamour Dust to her flowers and watering can.
I`ve used a pale pink ribbon and bow (ofcourse) and some Prima flowers and gem brads.

Still got loads to do before we go away. You`d think we were going for a month not a long weekend but y`know how it is.
My son and my future daughter in law are staying at our house to look after the dogs and I really don`t want her thinking she`s marrying into a mucky family, lol.

Thank you for popping in, Lynne xxx
