Tea time

Then I saw this brilliant tutorial in Top Tip Tuesday by Deneen, I knew, I want to make one :o) I also followed the tip of Janette and made my teapot into an easel. I'd like to enter my card to their challenge Top Tip Tuesday  - Mothers Day / Craft Buddy. Although I'm not sure, may I do that. My card is not meant as Mothers day card. In Estonia, we celebrate that day in May. This card goes to my godmother, for her birthday. She is very special for me :o)
I can't wait until trees go green. I miss green so much that I had to make my card green :o) It's perfect for Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - Use lots of green challenge. 
In Allsorts Challenge has great theme - Three in row. I have lots of things on the card by three: three roses, three yellow flowers with three green rhinestones, three green flowers with liquid pearls and three butterflies. Ooh, butterflies. I love them :o) DRS Designs Blog - Challenge #17 - Butterflies is a challenge for me :o) and Flutter by Wednesdays - challenge #195 - Open, anything goes with butterfly.
It's Bingo time in Simon Says Stamps Challenge. I used heart shape charm, die cuts and ribbons. And I'd also like to enter my card into Addicted To Stamps Challenge - Challenge #26 - Rhinestone, flowers and ribbons, and also in The Emerald Faeries Garden - Challenge #20 - Easel card. And of course One Crazy - March challenge Birthday wishes.
All challenge are mentioned, now a little bit of my card :o)  Design paper is from Prima - Botanical A4 paper stack. There are so many pretty papers. It was hard to choose only one. Butterflies are stamped and die cut with Sissix Hero Arts stamps & die-cuts "Butterflies". Roses are stamped with My Paper World "Flowers and Butterflies" stamp. It has only two roses so I stamped it twice and put one extra rose in between. All the stamping is  made with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. White and yellow ribbons are from my stash. And so are small yellow and green flowers. I don't know which company made them. I buy my ribbons from fabric store and sometimes I see other lovely embellishments I have to buy :o) I think the smalls flowers are bought on there and so is the green heart charm. Rhinestones are from Dovecraft Back to Basics  - Christmas collection. Luckily they are good to use on all kind of projects :o) Faux pearls are made with Stanger Pearl Paste. All the coloring is made regular water base felt markers (scribbled onto acrylic block) and water brush. And some atYouSpica glitter markers 'Lemon' (on roses and butterflies), 'Melon' (on leaves and green border on sentiments) and 'black' (on sentiment). Edges of the teapot are distressed with 'vintage photo' distress ink. Teapot sits on the die cuts of Spellbinder Nestabilities - Lacey Circles and Nellie's multi frame's Round Lily. 
Oh, forgot to say that texts are made in computer and then printed out. Labels for sentiments are cut out with scissors.
