Tea and bunting

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and our theme this time is...


We are sponsored by Stamp and Create with a $20 voucher prize :-)

You know those cards that just come together so easily?
This wasn't one of those!

I had a totally different bit of DP for the backing but after I coloured the teapot it just didn't look right, but then happily I came across exactly the right piece of gingham instead!

Then I had this idea for some bunting...nice idea but it took a while to get it how I wanted of course!

None of my stamp sentiments seemed to look right so I generated one on the computer :-)

It still looked a little plain so I popped on a few flowers...and there's my 3 of something!

After all that I absolutely love the finished result but then it is pink and green which is one of my fave colour combos :-)

And I *really* love bunting!
