Crafty Secrets DT Challenge (Party Theme Inspiration)

Good morning! Today is the Crafty Secrets "Party" Theme DT Challenge. I designed a sweet little ensemble for a tea party.I created a a place mat, a place card and a card that could be sent for an invite to a tea party. For the place mat I started with a piece of 8 x 8 white cardstock and randomly stamped the rose image from the Roses Clear Art Stamps from Crafty Secrets using Rich Cocoa ink. Then I colored the roses and leaves using Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters, Forest Moss and Antique Linen Distress Inks. Then I added a border using S5-040 Floral Doily Accents from Spellbinders and then I added Diamond Stickles to all of the roses. For the place card I used an image from Love Mail Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets and the Roses Clear Art Stamp. I distressed the edges of the image and added Diamond Stickles to the flowers on the image. Then to create the rose I stamped the image three times, inked it to add color and then hand cut the flower making the center piece smaller. I layered the flower and then added Diamond stickles. I used S4-328 Foliage from Spellbinders to create the leaves for the rose. Next I cut/embossed a tag using S5-030 Fancy Tags Two, inked the edges and then added Fancy Tags Two Pink Pearl Nestabling from Want2 Scrap. I also edged the tag with stickles.Here is a close up of the place card.For the card I used another image from the Love Mail Creative Scraps. I love the images on the Love Mail Creative Scraps they are SO beautiful!! I distressed and inked the edges with Antique Linen and added stickles to the flowers. I stamped flourishes around the outer edges of the card using the Cherubs Clear Art Stamp from Crafty Secrets and added stickles. I used S4-312 Blossom Three to create the rolled rose and S4-328 Foliage from Spellbinders for the leaves. I added some rose ribbon trim and a antique gem trinket pin from Maya Road. I also added a little bow using hand tinted crinkle seam binding.
