It's Isabella Time!

Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday! Isabella's Design Team are ready to issue you another challenge and this week we're asking you to 'use your scraps - no piece of paper (other than the card blank) to be more than 3" x 3" and nothing new!'

Choosing my image this week was easy but choosing my scraps was more difficult, I can tell you.  I decided (for some strange reason) to go pastel this week, which is not my usual style, as you will know! But I had some little scraps of pretty pastel papers that I thought would look really sweet and it just sort of grew:

Image: Isabella's Sketchbook, 'Cup Stack'

Papers: scraps from Pink Petticoat 'Vintage Roses' collection. This collection is new out but I promise these were genuine scraps from another project I made!

The ticket is one of my own embellishments, generated on the PC.

This is really different for me and I have to say that I really found it a challenge to bring it all together.  I hope I've managed it!

The cups were paper-pieced from scraps of the Vintage Rose collection and I used more scraps to create the roses.  I added a bit of cotton lace, a pretty bow and some pins - not forgetting that luscious pearl button!

Actually, whilst I was photographing this for the close-up shot, I decided that it might be nice to see a shot of all the embellishments for a change, as the teacups on their own are less exciting.  So today's close up shot is the main grouping, for a change.

Now it's over to you.  Remember, you must use an Isabella's Sketchbook image for your entry and get those scraps working! 

Don't forget to check out my Teamies' blogs too - they've had some wonderful ideas this week.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Happy crafting.
