Tea For Two, TSSC84, Basic Grey Week 2 Challenge

This is the last week of my summer vacation. I head back to school on Monday and the kiddos start on Tuesday. I have been just relaxing and creating this week. This card was made for two different challenges. The first one is the Monday lunchtime sketch challenge, TSSC84. Mary Jo's sketches are always fun to do. The only thing I altered was the strip in the center I angled instead of leaving it straight. I fell in love with this Penny Black mice stamp when I saw it at the convention in Springfield this past June. I just got around to inking it up yesterday.

The second challenge this card was made for is the Basic Grey week 2 colour combo, pink, brown and yellow. It was a bit of a challenge to figure out were to fit in the yellow because I had already colored the image when I decided to do the challenge. I love using the Basic Grey paper packs so it wasn't tough to pick out papers I liked for it!
Stamps: Penny Black
Paper: SU Choc. Chip, Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink, Papertrey White and DP Basic Grey
Ink: Copics, Memento Black, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Nesties, SU Corner Punch, Kaiser Pearls, Prima Roses

I am really glad you stopped by to see my creation. Thank you for for wonderful comments, I really appreciate them.

Enjoy your day,

The colour is so fresh and your image is beautifully coloured. Paper with fabric is totally new idea. I used same theme at school days card challenges.
