Vintage Teapot

Hi everyone. Loved doing this card, even though it took me most of the day as I take so long in deciding what papers I am going to use before I decide on an image to match. Hope you like it.
  •  papers from cd
  • blue flower made by my own hands using a tutorial from Paper Pleats and Ribbon Roses blog. Lovely blog take a look. 
  • my new flexmarkers used on flower and punched leaves: celestial blue, glacier blue and pale citrus.
  • fiskars lace punch
  • teapot image from the Graphics Fairy blog. I left the image uncoloured as I thought I would spoil it.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Shabby Tea Room - week #74 Tea For Two with Blue and Green
Papertake Weekly - Grow Your Own
Pink Ink Sketch - Challenge #3 Jeanette's Sketch
Any comments are very much appreciated. Have a good weekend xx

Hi Karen, thanks for the comment on my flowers. Just letting you know that I got my buttons on ebay. I just put a search in for buttons or antique buttons. Most of mine arent antique, just lookalikes. Lee xx
