Embellish Magazine - Tea Party Trends

The challenge this month at Embellish Magazine is to design a card,
layout or otp project based on a tea party and based on the colours in this photo.
Now I have an admission, I don't drink tea! Well not the real thing
 from a pot anyway. I do like a herbal tea or a nice chai., but what I really
love are gorgeous china teacups and I even started collecting teapots at one stage.
I have a teapot in the shape of an old fashioned bath tub and one that like
old toaster.

I am also entering this in the LESSology Challenge #16

Bubble boy or girl. This is where I got the idea to use bubble wrap 
to stamp the background on the teapot. I found a wooden teapot decoration
 in a local stationary store,  I just had to have it.
 When this challenge came along, I decided to decorate it.
(t was originally just plain white. )
First of all I lightly sanded it and then covered the teapot with with
 some text paper, then used bubble wrap to stamp the green dots.
The script is computer generated.
I found the tags on a free scrapbooking site Miss Cutiepie.
The bird and branch are made with memory box dies  and the flowers 
are made with  Dynamics mini rose. I used some old pearls and 
rhinestones from Kaisercraft. I used a punch for the pink trim 
and some random ribbon.
