My daughter just turned 5 a few weeks ago and we threw a tea party for her and her friends! The girls each got a hat that they decorated with feathers and flowers and they each got a tea cup and saucer to take home, too (thank you Salvation Army!).
For her invites, I found a tea cup card cut file (see more details below) and used some old Basic Grey "Sweet Threads" paper for pattern (these are at least 2-3 years old!). As I was going through the papers, I realized how much I loved them, so I decided to bring them back for this page as well.
I was inspired by a quick little tutorial I saw at ScrapMuch? by Laura. You simply cut a scalloped punched piece at the highest points instead of the valleys. Anyways, I cut all these pieces out from lots of different patterns and created a "wreath" like pattern on the background. Before I glued the papers down, I stitched concentric circles around the page, put the papers down, and stitched a circle around them, as well. Then I outlined some of the punched shapes with a thin black pen to make them stand out a bit more.
There are a few mist splatters on the background and some chipboard pieces also from the Sweet Thread collection. You can also faintly see some polka dots that I lightly stamped with a black ink.
I wanted to make this page really look frilly, so I used some pearls (along with the frilly punch to create the wreath pieces), pink, and flowers. What's more girly than that? :)
The #5 was cut with my Cameo and the "Happy" was a sticker from the collection, too!
