Tea for Two

I'm back!  My weekends are busy with family just now, it's the only time I get to see DH, so crafting takes a back seat.  I did manage to finish this card in odd moments, although I'm not too sure about the greeting .. .. it's just fixed with little 3d foam pads so I could with a bit of luck and care replace it with something else.  Anyway, having won the 2nd prize on the Marianne Design Challenge blog last month, I thought I'd enter again this month.  My translation read to create a card that wasn't square or rectangular, so I came up with this circular design.  I cut the base card with a very old Sizzix die then added the pretty Marianne circles and embellishments cut from Eline's Scandinavian Winter paper pack and scraps of red and soft blue card.  The stamped image is called Daisiy's Birthday and I've coloured with my Copics before fussy cutting out and 3d fixing to the inner blue circle.  I've inked the embossed layers on the outer circle with chalk ink, and finished off with blue pearls.

The Marianne products I used on this card are:
Eline's Scandinavian Winter paper bloc - PB7040
Daisy's Birthday stamp - DDS3308
Eline's Scandinavian woven hearts die - CR1228
Flower and stamens - LR0112
Double Frame Circles LR0141
Butterfly - LR0158
Leaf sprays - LR0192
Text from clear stamp sheet - SF1118

The Stampavie and More challenge is anything but square so I'm entering with them too.
