Another PP358

Happy Monday, peeps!  I trust you had a good weekend!  I have a confession!  The card I have for you today was supposed to be for yesterday's Paper Players challenge.....but I forgot that it was supposed to be clean-and-simple, and although I love this card, I didn't really feel like it met Joanne's criteria!!!  So I saved it for today:

I used the same DSP, Just Add Color Specialty, this time it was the teapot paper!  I used the Sunday Stamps Summer Petals color palette:

and using inks and an aquapainter, I colored in the images!  Isn't this one cute?

And I very carefully ('cuz it's a really tiny stamp) used the "berries" from Carols of Christmas for the wallpaper design behind my array of teapots:

I used the new Quilt Top embossing folder for the background, and I used a sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet and stamped it on a stitched tag from Pretty Pink Posh:

 These colors are just so pretty together!  Thanks for popping in today!

Dana had a big party for Cassidy on Saturday--the weather was perfect, the kids had a load of fun and I got to meet some of Wayne's family and catch up with some of my own!  Of course there was cake:

and even though I am not a big fan of bright artificial colors on my cake, I have to admit that these were pretty amazing!  A local gal that waitressed with Dana bakes these!  Cassidy was thrilled with them, of course:

And although she didn't get all seven candles blown out in one shot, she gave it a good try!

 Enjoy your day and be blessed!

A colouring 'two for two' LeAnne - I love this cheery tea set and all the additional details, especially the wallpaper - genius! I think I need some tips from you for using an aqua painter with this paper - that's where I started with my card yesterday and the leaf pattern paper, but I got into a total mess so resorted back to markers. Cassidy looks like she had a fabulous day - love that cake!!

Looks like Cassidy had a great time at her birthday party, love the cake. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Love the coloring on your card AND on the cake/cupcakes! I think those might be my inspiration for the Come and Get It Challenge for Sunday. Have a great and blessed week!

Love the card. So many beautiful details and lovely colors. Looks like a fun BD party and I, on the other hand, LOVE frosting no matter what the color, LOL. Glad Cassidy had a happy birthday.
