Tea For Two -Once Upon a Princess

I'm enjoying my week at Everyday Cricut, and I want to thank you all for you wonderful comments, it really makes my day great!

So today I couldn't decide if I should do a Fall/Thanksgiving project or a Winter/Christmas project, so I decided to do neither and play with my Once Upon a Princess cartridge, after all, it's the give-a-way cartridge this week at Everyday Cricut.

I have to admit this is the first time I used this cartridge and I've had it for about a month now. This is such a fun cartridge and quite cutesy, but I wanted to create a project that wasn't cutesy just to show the versatility that you can get by using different colors of paper.

I love the way this card turned out, and I think it could work for several occasions, friendship, birthday etc. The weathered patterned paper is a very old pack of Stampin' Up! designer paper I've had it for several years.

For details about this card visit Everyday Cricut -HERE

I hope you like today's card and can see that the Once Upon a Princess cartridge doesn't always have to be cutesy :)
Thanks so much for visiting today.

    this is the part that hard for me, I seem to always have one part so much bigger than the other which is to be pieced together.

  40. I am a tea drinking grandma, who has all of the younger generation interested in the entire concept of how tea came about being, and why it is today, an elegant ceremony, even for every day drinking, as it was 200 or more years ago! This tea pot and tea cups card is just so precious! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!
    Blessings, Donna

    Have a happy day!
