High Tea


Hi everyone.  Time for a new challenge at ATCAS.  This challenge is being hosted by the very talented Sandie (London Days) and she choose this fantastic code word ...








I started thinking about what I find is a luxury to me ... and I came up with going to High Tea with my girlfriends.  So much fun to get together, have some laughs, and be waited on with delicious little cakes and tea ... this is a luxury to me! :)

I printed off the sweet digital image of cakes and colored them with my Stampin' Write markers.  I added some dazzling details to give the icing some sparkle ... and added glossy accents to the hearts and cherry for dimension and shine.

I used a heart embossing strip for the background and added a simple sentiment to finish.

I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge.  I want to thank Lyndal for being our Guest Designer this month ... she has done a fabulous job --- her cards are so beautiful and inspiring - thank you Lyndal!!  Click HERE to see Lyndal's take on the code word ... and to see the other amazing creations by our very talented design team.

Just a note that this challenge is only open for one week (not the usual two), so please remember to get your luxury cards linked up within the next seven days. Looking forward to seeing you in the gallery!
