This week at the Shabby Tea Room, Debbie has provided the inspiration photo with the theme "Tea Party Picnic." The guidelines for this challenge are to use the colors in the photo along with flowers and a tea theme.
This week's prize sponsor is "The Cutting Cafe." They carry great cutting files and stamps. Check them out!
I had a hard time deciding on what direction to go with this challenge, as I have the cutest little picnic basket stamp and die set I could have used. But, then I remembered I am going to have tea with a friend on Monday, and I could make something to surprise her with when we get together!
I chosen made a pillow box to put some little tea cake cookies in to share with her when we go to tea on Monday. I can't wait to give it to her! :)
I die cut the little pillow box and then embossed it with a circle folder. I rubbed ink over the top to distress it. I made my flower and distressed the edges with a brown ink. I love the way it turned out, and now off to the store to get my tea cake cookies to slip inside (or maybe I will see if I have all ingredients and make them)!
Have a great weekend-
