THE CARD CONCEPT #34 (Pretty Paper Packaging)


This challenge really intrigued me as I loved the colours used on the designer cards.  I made 10 assorted cards like this for any occasion.  It could also be a Mother's Day card.  It brings me many memories of having tea with my Mom.  She makes the best tea (she is 93), and always says that tea is best served and drank in a good china cup.   This card is for you Mom! 
  I say "Shabby Chic" is my style.   Mom loves lace and flowers.  What more can I say.
