Cute as a Button Vintage Tea Cup Thank You Card

Looking for my GIVEAWAY????  Comment on any or all my posts this week!

Hi, all.....

I am still making Thank You cards for all the lovely things I received for my birthday.  When I saw that Buttons (and Bows) was the theme for a few challenges, I thought they would be sweet things to put on this card.

The ribbon across the top is layered with a celtic knot patterned trim I found at a thrift store.  I glued that over the top of the pink.  I like how the silver edges of the pink ribbon peek out.

The white panel with the teacups is re-purposed from the flap of a decorative envelope that held a note I received from a friend (I told you I would use this, Christy!!).  It was too pretty to get rid of.  Don't you agree????

I put Glossy Accents on the teacups to make them gleam.  I took this shot at an angle so you could see it better.  The GA also makes them a slight bit dimensional, which I like.

Can you see the little teapot-shaped tea ball near the second cup on the right?  I colored over that with a Sparkle Gelly Roll pen to make it shimmer.

All in all, I really think this turned out nice.  Of course, it is *another* pink card!!  I just can't stay away from them for very long!  :)

Thanks for stopping in to see my blog.  I really appreciate all the comments.  Remember each comment on a post from this week is an entry in my giveaway!!


I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1.  BMC Get Inky Challenge --  Buttons, Buttons, Everywhere
2.  Alphabet Challenge Blog -- B for Buttons and Bows
3.  House of Cards -- March Challenge #1 Add a Button in the Vintage/Shabby class.


I'm amazed I was able to get these last two cards photographed.  Right in the middle of my photo session on this stormy night, Othello came inside with the muddiest paws ever!!  He was so affectionate that I just knew he would jump up on the table where I had my newly-completed cards and put HIS "finishing touches" on the masterpieces, if you know what I mean!!!  Arggggghhh.....they would have been finished, all right!!!  He finally was sequestered in my son's room until I was done.  No mishaps....this time!

What have your pets put their muddy paws on lately???
