Time for Tea with the Queen

in the garden with this lovely Lady from Pollycraft: Cherry Kisses Tea in the 20's ... and just in case you wonder about the strange shadows in the photo ... they were taken in the garden during some wonderful sunny moments!
image: Pollycraft (Cherry Kisses from the 1920s) - stamps: Artistic Outpost
paper: ivory card, Papermania - colouring: Copics
Mulberry flowers, handbag charm, pearl, Nestabilities, ribbon
some stitching

The inspiration for this card came from Jane who makes the most fabulous cards with Pollycraft images and others, thank you Jane! I covered some square ivory cardstock with Papermania paper and added some nestabilities stamp and square shapes, the sentiment is stamped on Papermania paper and machine stitching around the edge. The Lady is coloured with Copics, has a wonderful stylish handbag and is put on foam pads so that she has a bit of a raised position to have a better view of the Queen during the Afternoon tea (lol). Mulberry flowers and a little pearl complement the the tea time in the garden!

Hope you can join us for the Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge: Time for the Queen's Tea, Petra.
