Time For Tea

Soooo, this started out as a card for my husband's Grandma, whose birthday it is while we are away.  I like it so much though that I don't want to give it away.

To make this card, I used a LOTV die-cut and took my colour theme from there.  I used kraft paper and some paper which, I think, came from an old Papercrafter kit, but I'm not really sure.

I inked the edges of all pieces of paper and the die cut with brushed corduroy distress ink.  I then stitched all the layers together.

The lace ribbon is actually some self-adhesive paper lace which I wrapped around the panel before stitching the image on.

I have also used some craft gauze, an ivory heart charm which came with a previous Crafty Creative box, some blue ribbon to tie a bow around this and some paper flowers from my stash.

I had a wooden star lying around on my work desk, so I decided to add that too, as it went with the theme.  

I also die-cut a Cheery Lynn small exotic butterfly from some blue scrap paper.

To finish the card, I added a flat backed pearl to each corner and added a silver sentiment.  I love these sentiments, but have nearly run out.  I have had them forever, so I don't think I will be able to get any more.

I want to enter this into the following challenges:
