Welcome, home

This week at The Shabby Tearoom  they are celebrating High Tea.  Look at this gorgeous inspirational photo, wow, makes me want to sip a cup of spicy Chai.....

This week I have been expecting company, my DH went away on a trip and he just came back last night, he was so missed by the kids and me.  Inspired by the photo I decided to make him a welcome card.  Probably not what you would expect for a man, but nonetheless it's for him.
I took out my Perfect Medium and my perfect pearls and the most fab Carte Blanche stamp, from their new release, I decided to give it the gold look of the inspirartion tea cup in a subtle way.
so here is the required doily with some extras

 a side view of the card so you can see the pearl's shine
 a peek of the inside (welcome Home)
 And the full reveal, since the inspiration photo had some Battenburgh lace peeking I decided to cut some out of a Hambly paper, and just a touch of pink.
 And then I got carried away and made another, how about a cup of tea, to put a gift card?
 same stamp, flipped and embossed in gold glitter
you can say I am in an acqua mood, very soothing...I made the teacup template and it fully works and stands!!!

Have an awesome weekend and enjoy some quiet time with a cup of tea wherever you are,

Gosh, how beautiful, Milagros! And how sweet that you made a welcome home card for your hubby. I think that's the MOST adorable thing! Love your card, too. the gatefold opening and the elegant stamping are beautiful. Love the key you added to the inside. And your teacup card and template are pure fabulousness, too!

Your card is so pretty! I love that gold shimmer on the teal paper - so pretty. That little doily with the bouquet is the perfect femine touch. Your card reminds me of a faberge egg - very elegant. Your teacup card turned out really well too - love that sparkle of the glitter!
