I just can't get enough of my chipboard pieces

hello everyone,

Hope everyone has had a good last few days. I have had a great weekend, it was my mum's birthday yesterday and we all had a nice day out, I made part of my mum's gift that she loved so I am extremely happy about that. Today I went out with my girlfriends and again had a nice lunch, calories galore all this weekend, will have to watch what I eat for the rest of the week, its good to indulge now and again.

Doing colour challenges these days is not coming easily to me. I have to really seek lots of inspiration before attempting to make a card, its good to finally be able to come up with an idea, I just wish it didn't take quite so long to happen.

As I have mentioned before I purchased a supply of chipboard pieces at the last craft show I recently attended and this gorgeous teapot set is part of that collection I acquired. I was a bit stuck at first on how to decorate the craft coloured chipboard without loosing the craft background, I atlast came up with the idea of embellishing the chipboard pieces with flower rubons, it worked well as it added the colours I needed to use for this challenge without loosing the craft background. I added diamantes to the teapot and cups. I stuck lace to the paper table cloth and the sentiment is a rub on that I thought went well with the card.

The Challenges I have included-
ColourQ-Challenge #78
The Shabby Tea Room-Flower Palette. Inspiration photo for this challenge is on my previous post.

Have a good week everyone and thanks again for popping by :)

I was chosen as one of the ColourQ Courtiers for this card over at ColourQ
