OCC - Afternoon Tea

Happy Saturday! It's time for another Our Creative Corner challenge - and this week Sharon wants to see creations using the theme "Afternoon Tea". I'm sharing the Marie Antoinette themed afternoon tea party invites I made for my friend Janine's birthday. You've already seen the cake I made in this post here.
This is the inspiration photo Janine gave me....and here's the card...
I took the colours, the top note shape, pearls, flourishes, doily accents and the bling and incorporated them into the card. It took awhile....but it's so nice to see a pile of matching cards at the end of a long crafting session!
I hope you'll join us this week at OCC - I can't wait to see your creations. Be sure to leave the design team some love too!


  1. soooo beautiful, Sarah! looove the colors and layers.
