I'm hosting a tea party in July and used my Heartfelt Creations supplies to help me create personal invitations. I was inspired by this elegant card by Lesley. The sentiment is from Door to My Heart PreCut Set. The stamp on the left is from Script Aster Background PreCut Set. The stamping on the right is a combination of Vintage Word Background PreCut Set and a retired leaf stamp. I used Honeycomb embossing powder with the retired leaf stamp.

I used Prismacolor pencils to color this image and topped with a bit of Diamond Stickles. The edge of the card is colored with Wild Honey Distress Ink.

Thanks for stopping by!

A tea party...what a unique idea in these times! I really like your colour combinations; they make this project pop and give it a modern look for a time old tradition - a Tea Party. I'm inspired...this project has got me to thinking that it would make such a wonderful way to get to know your neighbors; or, to welcome a new one. As usual Heartfelt makes it so feminine.
