Tea Party ~ Sketch Blog Hop


I hope you have enjoyed this Tea Party Hop!! If you arrived from Nilla's blog and have visited all 13 other blogs; you have now arrived on the last blog of the hop. If you did not arrive from Nilla's blog you will want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Paper Cupcakes Challenge Blog which you can find here; as not to miss anything and to be eligible for the random drawings!

The image that I bring you is called "Tea Party Princess" I truly love this image. I really don't enjoy drawing people too much, but I really like how she turned out. I colored my image with colored pencils and kept my card fairly simple as to really showcase the image. I used both the Garden Trellis and the Hydrangea Petal punches by Martha Stewart to do the side of my card. Then of course I finished it off with pearls and rhinestones. It turned out just how I had envisioned it.


My Card:





My card is actually a Joy Fold Card. Because I have made this type card before I didn't follow these instructions. I think my card is actually bigger. My card is a 5x7. I have a little flower on the bottom left side holding my flap in place. If you haven't tried one of these, you should. They are easy peasy!

My Sketch: My sketch will work for a joy fold card or a regular card.


I hope you have enjoyed our Tea Party~Sketch Hop; the new releases and enjoyed collecting some fun sketches to work from. We would love it if you would come back and join us for our Magical Monday Challenges as well; every Monday.

Hi Nina,
I love your tea time princess and must own her for my digital collection. Your card is so pretty and I love the sketch. I have hopped to every blog however, I ran into some snags along the way. I could not comment on Gloria, Marie, Pat or Pattie P's blogs. I clicked on post comment and the comment box never appeared. I have tried several times at each. I even went back through the hop thinking I had done something wrong and I still can't post.

Thanks for being a great host and I look forward to more beautiful digis.

Blessings,
Mary
