Afternoon Tea Anyone!

Fit to entertain any Queen I say lol! Gosh my china tea sets are up in the loft and Lace tablecloths hiding away in a drawer somewhere so if she ever comes a calling she better give me some warning Okay enough of my nonsense and onto my card.

 Stampalot challenge this month fairly had me, didn't want to be beaten but Monarchs and Medals....what on earth was I going to attempt since I didn't have anything specific in my stash....now there's a first! But then I came across these papers, SU and Papermania and came up with the good old British traditional Afternoon Tea.. Found the teapot and cups/saucer templates on google, printed them out on my papers and 3D them. Added some diamond gems to simulate the steam.

Morning Carol

You were not the only one stumped here, remind me who was it came up with the theme bowing to perceived public pressure ?

It's clear your thinking all came together in the end though, this is just gorgeous, who wouldn't want a tea set like that.

Thanks for joining in at Stampalot this month.
