Bright and Cheery Tea Party!

Well, did you have to put your sunglasses on for this one? I made this card for our first ever smARTworks design team "tea party"--A layout (sketch) challenge for us to showcase some more fun ways to use the stamps they offer. I have had this little bee for quite some time now, and I must say, I think he's so cute!! The designer paper is by Imaginisce and I love love love it! It's got to be one of my favorites I've seen here lately. All that to say, I just instantly grabbed for it to go with this bee for our little tea party and come to find out, that's the name of the paper design! Let's Pretend Tea Party--how perfect! Anyway, check out the sketch here, and be sure to see my fellow team member's renditions as well--Dina, Heidi, Donna, Susan T. and Trish--they will be posting theirs throughout the day! Feel free to play along and link back to me here! I'd love to see what you come up with--it's a great sketch!

Stamps: smARTworks
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Real Red
Paper: YoYo Yellow, Real Red, Cool Caribbean, DP by Imaginisce (Let's Pretend Tea Party)
Other: Yellow Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Square Punch, Red Stickles, Stardust Stickles, Cuttlebug Bloom Dots embossing folder, Dimensionals, Prismacolor Markers, Red Brads (the Paper Studio)

ETA: I apologize for such a crummy picture--bleh! I may try and redo it later when I don't have to take it in the bathroom where the light was only so so. It's just too windy to take it outside today like I normally do!!


  1. What a happy card - love the ribbon (I never seem to be able to put it on the upper half of a card for some unknown reason) So glad you were able to play along and that Shelbie is home safely

  2. That is bright and cheery -- makes me smile just to look at it! I thought I had all the paper I needed, but it looks like I need some brights too! **grin**

  3. Great card Susan! It's nice to see this bright and cheery card when I look out my window and see nasty skies and rain!! I agree that the bee is adorable too!

  4. Ooh! fun! That bee is toooo sweet. Love the bright colors! Mine are all muted neutrals. So fun! Thanks for playing - I'm glad you got the chance!


  5. So totally cute! I can't wait to play!

  6. I LOVE that paper! The bee and the "Have a happy heart"...PERFECT!

  7. I love these fun, happy colors. What a great card!
