Tea Pots and Tea Cups for Mojo Monday & PPA#279.....

Hello everyone: I like it when I can combine challenges with my cards, this time I made this one for the Mojo Monday Sketch challenge and the Pals Paper Art #279  color challenge, here is my card.
I made this card using a Verve Stamp set called Cup of Life , love those tea pots and matching little cups. I stamped them onto Canson water color paper with SU Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler and matted them with gold foil paper. The Christmas Wreath is from Wplus9 stamp set called Woodland Wreaths , here is a close up of it.

I added a few burgundy Rhine Stones for sparkle. 
As I promised myself, I will finish the inside of the card before I post it, this will save me a lot of time when I'm sending my Holiday cards. I always finish the inside but not until later and it's very time consuming to have to do it all at once, by finishing the inside I not only can show it to you but, like I said before, the cards will be ready to sign and send.
This sentiment is from a retired SU set called Joy to the World and the little heart ornament is from a Penny Black set called A Bright Tomorrow , all of this images are just so beautiful.

Here are the banners that inspired this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your comments, till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  2. Thanks my friend, this sketch was really nice, I just had to make the card a bit bigger than my usual 5 1/2"x 4" to accommodate this chubby little pots, this one is 6 1/2"x5". The PPA colors were just perfect for this layout, I love those pretty tea pots with their matching cups.

  12. Hi Maria, this is a fantastic as well as efficient card as you knocked out two challenges with it. I am still struggling with that. It does not seem to happen to me that often. Teapots and Wreaths are two of my favorite things, too.

    1. Thank you Roseanne, I try to combine challenges as often as I can, I look them over and more times than not, you can at least combine 2 of them. I usually combine a sketch challenge with a color challenge like in this instance, other times I combine a sketch challenge with a theme challenge, it's fun and more people get to see your cards. I hope you keep trying.
      Thank you so much for stopping by.

  13. Maria, this is a great combination of perfect color use and balance, and great interpretation of a sketch. I would have never thought to use tea cups and pots, but the sure work! Thanks for playing with Pals Paper Arts!
