Feeling a bit girlie....again!

Ok, so I couldn't resist...give me spare time and I either surf the web or make cards! Tonight I did both...inspired by SSW earlier I decided to surf the web some more and see what other gorgeous blogs I could find....there are so many out there, but one that grabbed my eye is The Shabby Tea Room (do you think it was the name that grabbed my attention?!?). The DT create gorgeous cards on a weekly basis and their blog is absolutely gorgeous too - take a peek!

Their challenge this week is buttons and bows, so I thought I'd give it a go. I decided I wanted to create a really girlie card for this challenge.....

The layout for this card is from this week's sketch challenge over at Papertake Weekly. Take a peek at their blog to see how the DT used this sketch to create some fab cards.

The backing paper on my card is a beautiful pearlised gold card with the pink pattern over the top, I think its really pretty and suited this card. I've used ribbon and pink twine on my pink paper teacup, along with some cute tiny buttons (why do things get cuter when they are smaller??). I've also used a white pen to add some detail on the teacup and the pink backing paper. I think I got a bit carried away! I added another tiny button and a cute bow to the bottom corner for extra girlie appeal. I'm really pleased with this card too - thats two in one evening...I'm on a role!

While looking at the Shabby Tea Room blog I came across Lilsweetpea's blog which is also so gorgeous! As well as fabulous makes you can watch fab tutorials. Lilsweetpea has over 400 followers and to celebrate she is giving away some gorgeous candy - take a peek here!

Right, thats me done for the evening I think - my bed is calling (yes I know its only 10pm, but I'm sleepy!!).

Thanks for stopping by today,
