Lavender Tea

     This is something I whipped up for a friend on a tea list I belong to.  I seldom use any shade of purple but this graphic 45 design paper was just to tempting.

     I used a beautiful doily frame from Cheery Lynn to frame my focal image.  I did embellish it some with some lovely ivory roses and punched butterflies.  I was going to just pop my favorite violet filled teacup on the lavender ribbon but it just didn't feel right.  I decided to add the small oval so that the image would be more prominent.

     Here's a close up of the framed image.  I adore these soft feminine cards.  They make me feel pretty myself.

   So tomorrow, I'll tuck a little tea sample inside and send it off to brighten a birthday.  I know I would be plum tickled to get this in my mail.
