Guest Design Spot for Crafting by Designs.

I'm so excited that today I am Guesting at Crafting by Designs.  The new Challenge is Lace/Doilies, sponsored by the fabulous Lunagirl vintage images, digital collage sheets and Cd's, also available on Etsy.  I've made a vintage tag using a beautiful Lunagirl image.  Spring always makes me think of tea parties and tea parties make me think of doilies an lace.  I've used Spellbinders Labels Five to mat the image as well as to cut the top of the tag.  The beautiful doily is also a Spellbinders, exclusive to Heartfelt Creations from the Raindrops on Roses collection.  The vintage DP is Graphic 45 and the lovely pink crocheted lace is Melissa Frances.

The teapot is a QuicKutz die.  The "T's" in Tea time are from an old Stampin'Up Alphabet set, stamped in Aged Mahogany Distress ink and cut with a smaller Labels 5 die.  The remaining letters in "Tea Time" are Nostalgiques stickers by Sticko (which remind me of the tags on a tea bag) and everything has been "shabbied" up a bit using Distress Inks.  Finally, I've added an unusually packaged tea bag that I brought home from a trip.  Not my usual style but I love how it all came out.  Thanks so much to Crafting by Designs for having me.

I'm also entering this in the Lunagirl Moonbeams Victorian Spring Challenge and the Digitally 'Sweet' Challenge Anything but a Card.
