EASTER TEA PARTY

I've had this design in my head since I first saw Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Sketch #75 earlier this week. This is my kind of sketch with all the fun and interesting layers, the row of brads, and scallop border! I couldn't WAIT to create it! Now that it's completed, I'm quite pleased (you don't hear me say THAT very often, do you?!). I combined the stamp set, A Good Egg with the new Tea Party Designer Paper.
RECIPE
Stamps: A Good Egg
Paper: Tea Party DP, Whisper White, So Saffron, Pretty In Pink, Certainly Celery, and Almost Amethyst CS
Ink: Basic Black
Embellishments: Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon, So Saffron Brads
Tools: Scallop Border Punch, 1/4", 3/4", 1", 1 1/4" Circle Punches, Word Window Punch, Priceless Classy Brass Template, Paper Piercer and Mat Pack
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals
Card Details:
* 1/4" Certainly Celery CS circles back each So Saffron Brad
* The paper piercing on the Certainly Celery 1 1/4" Circle behind the sentiment was created with the Priceless Classy Brass Template.
