Oh my goodness, this week's color combo at The Paper Players is GORGEOUS. So rich and luxurious. Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla. Doesn't that just scream dessert? Of course, the inspiration photo Lesley chose sure helps! When I think of dessert I think of either a big glass of cold milk (I'm funny that way!) or...a warm pot of tea! This sweet little teapot is inked up in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla cardstock. I used my Big Shot to emboss the Early Espresso card base with the Elegant Lines Impressions Folder--so pretty! And look how the elegant swirls repeat in the Elegant Soiree designer paper. Crumb Cake is just one of the beautiful colors in this paper that combines masculine stripes with elegant vines and leaves.
And look at this...I could not have planned this if I tried! When I finished everything else, I was all set to put a few bitty pearls on the leaves of the branch when my daughter said "Mama put them in those dots coming out of the teapot so it will look like steam!" Oh.my.gosh. How cute is that?! My little crafting girl made me proud with that idea! Have you purchased some of SU's new adhesive Basic Pearls, yet? You must have some!
OK, on to the inside and a matching teacup filled with a very special blend. How true...I love the ritual of tea and it's better sharing a cup with a friend. My favorite is Irish Breakfast...dark and stormy...what's yours?
