Anytime is a great time to throw a tea party and it’s such a great way to gather together a group of friends and friends and loved ones. Keep it simple or get as fancy and flowery as you want! Will this inspire you to pull our your favorite tea inspired stamps and dies? Does this painting inspire a new color combination for your project? Maybe the flowers on the teacups are creating a spark or the background texture of the painting… we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Karen Walker created this perfectly elegant Mother’s Day card inspired by the colors and flowers on the inspiration piece. Her watercolored dahlias are beautiful and we love the touches of gold with the embossed image, sentiment, and sequin embellishments.

Lisa Schenck created a fun pile of teacups inspired by the inspiration piece. Every time we look at this card we find more fun details to love like the impressed flower button, tea spelled out on the side, her layering of patterns, and her pretty ribbon at the top of the card.

Sandy Dayhoff created a gorgeous framed flower card based on the flower designs and colors in the inspiration piece. The layered frames around the outside just create a truly elegant effect and we love the touch of gold that frame the flowers.

Congratulations to the winners! Please send a note to customer service and let them know the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thank you to everyone who played along this month!
