I'm A Little Teapot

The Shabby Tea Room is having a DT call! I have been following this blog for a long time now and LOVE all of the inspiration there. I love the look of Shabby Chic designs and decided that I was going to challenge myself to create more "shabby" projects this year. When I saw the DT call, I thought, "why not?!" Perfect way to start creating outside of my comfort zone. I don't think I really have a "go to" style, it all depends on my mood and how much time I have when I sit down to create something.
This little teapot card is what I wound up with and I have to admit I am pretty thrilled with it. I love shaped cards, so that's all it takes for me! The inspiration photo they provided is below and as you can see I went with a pretty literal interpretation with the teapot and had so much fun with this.
Thanks for looking and wish me luck! I adore The Shabby Tea Room and would love to work with them!

Very pretty! I love it! I just emailed Heather to go thrift shopping with me! Carlee LOVES tea parties! I am tired of filling up her very tiny Tinkerbell tea cups I thought I could find some really pretty ones that hold a tad more than a sip so I can fill it every 45 seconds instead of every 5 seconds LOL
You will totally make the DT! Good Luck!!

Oh, Nora Anne! This is fabulous! What a perfect take on the DT call inspiration photo. That teapot shape is just adorable! I wish you very good luck on this call. I was on the Tea Room DT their 1st 6 months, and it was a wonderful experience. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
