Card Patterns

Hello everyone.  How are you all doing today?  I wanted to make a feminine card for the sketch challenge over at Cardpatterns.  I am a girly girl at heart, and anything with pastels and frills is right up my alley.  Funny thing is...I won't wear anything too girly or frilly.  Wierd?  I like my home decorated in the vintage shabby look too.  I collect teapots and tea cups and display them on crochet doilies.  My Mother-in-Law quilts and I have many of her wall hangings hung and table runners on my tables.  I just love them and the way it makes everything feel cozy.
 Anyway, on to the card.  I did make it my own a little.  I made the card 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 instead of square, and moved the circle up just a little.





This is a picture of my favorite tea cup and sugarl bowl on one of those beautiful quilted table runners.

Beautiful Heather! I love the card but love your teacups more! LOL I used to collect vintage teacups but it's been years and have since donated most to Amvets.
