You're My Cup of Tea Layout {My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club} filled with tons of Prima Tea Thyme!!

So here's the first layout I made using the My Creative 
Scrapbook Limited Edition Kit last month.  It was a really 
beautiful kit & the good news is that it is STILL AVAILABLE here!

I used a lot of Studio Calico white mist to tone down the background 
around the edges, to get the vignette effect I was after.

I used a Pink Paislee Vintage Doily mask with modeling
 paste & mist to transition the pinks & yellows from the 
papers into the background. 

I inked up the edges of the Color Bok 'Vintage Parlour' 
stickers using Olive Pastel by Color Box, & I used a doily 
die-cut from Quick Cutz {Nesting Doily Circles}.

I cut the Prima bling border into several smaller pieces 
& placed them around my layout & unravelled the green 
rose bunch  & retwisted the stems around my awl.

I love the effect achieved from making the bow out
of both colours of organza ribbon!

The Color Bok die-cuts on each side of the photos are the perfect
way to get the fussy- cut look without the fussy-cutting!!

I used Candy Apple Red mist from Tattered Angels and
 Sunflower Yellow from Maya Road to define the photo/paper
 cluster off the base.
