Witches Tea Party

These are photos from the Witches Tea Party I hosted before Halloween. What a fun time with my fellow witches. Not to worry, they are all the sweetest witches ever!

Paperback Pumpkin

I made this pumpkin from a paperback book! I learned how at a local crop I attend each month. It was pretty easy, looks super cute, and folds back up to a book when I want to store it. My friend sprayed hers with orange and green ink and it looked fabulous too!

Boss's Day Vintage Card

I fell totally in love with this card. I made it for my boss for Boss's Day. I started with a cream card base, and topped it with a vintage swirl/damask-ish patterned paper that I inked and distressed the edges. I topped that with another vintage-y pattern that was also inked and distressed. I punched out two leaf wreaths and cut them to make the vine branches. Those I glued on top of some iridescent angel hair. I made the roses out of cream paper and added pearls to finish it off. {Vintage love} !
