Roses with A Cup Of Tea

Good Morning ya'all, 

Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Today I am sharing an ATC that is a shabby chic look over at the Crafty Card Gallery. Hope you all like it as our them this Month is "Flowers", which is perfectly fitting with spring in the air, right?

ATC's are Artist Trading Cards which measure 2 1/2 by 3 1/2. I making these little cards as they do not take a lot of time and there is not a lot of room. So they are something quick and easy to create when you want to craft but don't have a lot of time. 

Here is what I did to accomplish this ATC - 

I used Blue Fern paper collection - Blush cut my base down to 2 1/2 by 3 1/2, fussy cut the teacup, bird & flower and heart with the little message inside the teacup. I added glossy accents to the heart and teacup. Crystal stickles to the fussy cut rose. Liquid pearls white to to the metal key and Say it with Pearls by Want 2 Scrap - white pearls in the corner and left side. I adhered lace in the middle of the card and placed the Prima Rose along with the gold heart button and fussy cut heart, teachp and other items ontop of the Lace from Reneabouquets, and the glitter glass is adhered on the background and placed my Reneabouquet butterfly to finish it off. I did distress the edges of the paper and used TH distress inks broken china & spun sugar around the card.

Here is a close up of the little letter. 
You can read what it says, it's so sweet. 
"A feast of flowers here behold 
A thing of joy to see, 
But ah! to me 'tis/'lis sweeter far
To feast mine eyes on thee!"

here I added liquid pearls to the center of the key. 

 In this pic. you can see a little bit of the 
Chunky Glitter Glass I used for the background.
