Teapot Tuesday! Best Wishes

Yesterday was Teapot Tuesday!! yay! The idea is to make a card based on our challenge - (which isn't really very difficult at all!) and then send it on to the destination for the week! We offer encouragement and blessings to those who need it!

Anyone can join us in this challenge. It's not by invitation only, it's an" open to the public" Splitcoaststampers Challenge. You also do not have to write a story, just be inspired by the teapot and if you choose, you can be inspired by the challenge story and our destination!

So this week's card is going (has already been mailed) to newlyweds Alan and Ellen - see their story here

We had to use red, green and white in our wedding creation - all I could think of was Christmas - so I whipped out the Big Blooms - Poinsettias from Waltzingmouse Stamps and coloured myself up a bright red flower!!

The poinsettia itself is absolutely all one layer - the colouring makes it look like there are layers and layers of petals - isn't wonderful what shading can do??!

The middle of the poinsettia, the gold and green was stamped, coloured, cut out and adhered onto the poinsettia because I goofed in the middle - but it is fine anyway - love being able to cover up the oopsies!!

The background is the gorgeous die from Cheery Lynn Designs - French Lattice. I cut it our in white cardstock and layered over more white cardstock - love the look!

I hope you can join in this fabulous challenge!!
