Just tea for two, and two for tea

I’ve got an old favourite from Simply B Stamps to share today, Rio N Toots Tea Party.

I’ve kept my card with them fairly CAS as this is going to a colleague who isn’t into fussy and frilly stuff.  Luckily the sketch at Sketch Saturday this week worked perfectly for a CAS style card.  I resized it to a 6x6 card and flipped it so I have an oval instead of a circle.  To echo the feathers in Rio’s hair I’ve swapped out the star element for a peacock feather, it adds a touch of elegance I think.

I didn’t want my card to be too plain and what better way to add some interest without fuss than with some texture so I’ve gone with some Dotted Swiss cardstock.  Polka dots are always striking so I’ve also used designer paper with polka dots.  As such, I’m entering this in the current challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks.

The current alcohol marker challenge theme at Outlawz is “keep calm and…” and what better way to finish that sentence than with “have some tea”, so I am entering my card there.
