My card for Joan's Gardens #6 Challenge

This is my card for #6 Joan's Gardens Challenge.  You can read about the challenge below.
Keep scrolling down  or click here to see the newest release (for preorder) of JustRite Stamps.  Also I added 4 new dies from Spellbinders. I will be posting more cyber "garage sale" items this afternoon, so stay tuned!








I love vintage things and I have been wanting a Tea Pot stamp for some time.  When I saw this on Heartfelt Creation's list of stamps, it said "buy me".  I hope you like it as much as I do.  It is nice and large and creates a great focal point.

The Tea Pot is colored with Copic markers and I matched it with the colors in the Domestic Goddess paper from Graphic 45.  The tag is also from that collection.  I love old signs and this reminded me of one.  I thought it added a lot to the card.  What do you think?  What I really think would be cool is to add an altered tea bag, but I was running out of time and didn't have a tea bag. (I don't drink tea).  I still might do another card some time with that thought though.  I have a good friend who loves tea.

I wanted a little more texture, so I added some lace.  I tried ribbon, but that just didnt' get it.  The sentiment is from JustRite's new collection Cherished Memories.  I thought it was perfect for this card.  You could use many others too, such as Happy Birthday etc.
