Shabby Tea Room Design Team Call

There is a design team call at the The Shabby Tea Room and just for fun I thought I would make a card to enter.  The rules require a card or other project using the photo below for inspiration.

Daisy Doodles created a new stamp while I was away last week and I thought it would be perfect as the basis of my card.  The only thing missing from this wonderful little scene are some little cookies on the tiered plate but I guess Daisy was watching my waist for me.  Then I became convinced that the stars were aligned when I found the background paper with the medallions in my stash.  I think they look similar to the design on the tea pot and although they are pink and the tea pot has red markings, I thought the paper would work.

The image is called Afternoon Tea and can be purchased from Daisy Doodles store.  I have coloured the image with a combination of Prismacolor and Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons.  The paper is from the Rose Colored Glasses Collection by g.c.d. studios.  The card stock is from the local office supply store and Recollections (Michaels).  Other supplies used:  Paper Rose (Dollarama), Heart Punch (Martha Stewart), Pearl Stickers (Recollections from Michaels), Ribbon (My stash), Lace (My late mother's stash), Large Pearl Brad (Gartner), Chalk (Mungyo) and Pearlescent Ink (Tsukineko).
