The Shabby Tea Room and Card Patterns

Good evening everyone!  I know that Debbie over at The Shabby Tea Room is inside my head.  The reason I know this is because her themes always pertain to something that I LOVE!!!  It's either pink or glitter or polka dots or shabby chic or teapots...  I know I used to live in the Victorian era in a previous life because that is the style that I love the most!  Well, Debbie did not let me down this week again.  Look at the precious photo she used for inspiration this week... 

Could you just die from cuteness???  Well, tell me, could you???
There was only 9 trillion possibilities of ways that this could be expressed in a card but of course you can't get 9 trillion embellishments on a card...........can you????  Anyway as you can see at the top of my post I settled on a beautiful image of a teacup with flowers and a fun polka dot background.  Of course this card called for some gorgeous crocheted flowers that my mom makes me.  I keep them in jars in my craft room by color.  She always checks my supply and replenishes the colors that are running low!  What a mom!!
I needed some direction as to where to go with this card so I used the great sketch #65 over at Card Patterns this week!  It looks like this.

All in all I'm pretty happy with the way the card turned out but I have to say that I will be having visions of teapots and polka dots for weeks to come...  Imagine the possibilities!!!!!!!!!
Have a great night everyone, I'm off to bed........
