Happy Saturday!  I had a few moments to get crafty today and decided to play along with April's Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop!   I just love inspiration challenges.








I started with rustic white card stock cut to 4.25 squared.  I stamped the front panel with Polka Basic Dots II stamp set in sweet blush ink distress stamping so it is not perfect.  I was playing off of the dots in the place setting.   I die cut the doily with white stampers select.  I layered a die cut enchanted evening circle that I embossed with the harlequin cover plate.  I inked it up with versamark to add some richness.  I love the look of the table runner in the inspiration picture.   I die cut and stamped the Bigger Blooms dies and stamp sets. I arranged my flowers using foam tape for added dimension.  For the sentiment, I used Fabulous Frames dies and stamp sets.  I added a sentiment from an old favorite called Vintage Picnic Sentiments.  I finished with a few clear gems.


As always thanks so much for stopping by!
