Pretty Palette #43

Hello my friends!  Today is Sunday which means we have another Pretty Palette challenge for you from My Time Made Easy.  I just love the colors for this,white, and navy.  Such a classy color palette!
My card for this palette began with the digi paper from My Time Made Easy.  I used three different paper packs for this and did something I've never done before.  I created my own striped pattern paper!  The blue patterns are from Tea Parlor Plum's Silent Night pack, the pink gingham is from Ga Ga for Gingham, and the other pink one is from the new Candy Kisses pack.  I inserted them into a Word document, cropped each one to 7"x1.5" and just stacked them next to each other.  I wish my sewing machine worked better so I could have run a zig-zag stitch between each one, but it just isn't working properly.

The paper with the tea cups on it was the inspiration for my card.   I love the A Spot of Tea stamp set and coordinating A Spot of Tea Pretty Pieces Cut file.  I cut the tea cup using the cut file, then stamped the outline of the tea cup in Night of Navy ink.  I then stamped the floral design in navy also, then inked the coordinating flowers and leaves in pink and green.  The sentiment is from the same set and is also stamped in navy.  I added the Martha Stewart flowers and a partial pearl flourish I had to mimic steam coming from the cup.  The pink base was scalloped on the left side with a border punch and I added a pretty pink dotted ribbon to finish it off.
This sketch from Card Patterns was the inspiration for the four different pattern panels I created.  What a lovely sketch!
