Just Us Girls #151 - Inspiration Challenge

Hi there!  I'm finally getting my card done for this week's Just Us Girls Inspiration Challenge.   Vicki has once again chosen a great picture to inspire us.
 
Here's a better look at his fabulous shabby chic picture.  Love it!  See that pink polka dotted teapot in the lower right corner?  THAT was my inspiration! 

And this is where the inspiration took me.   I started with this teapot from the On Display 1 digital stamp set from My Time Made Easy.   I enlarged it (and edited out the flowers that were on it) and printed it on the polka dot paper from My Mind's Eye called Madison Avenue.  (All the papers used were from this pack.)  I fussy cut it out.  The doily was cut using the Parisian lace die from PTI.  I just used typing paper to cut it out and then distressed it with Antique Linen distress ink.  The flowers were cut using Beautiful Blooms dies and the leaves from Turning a New Leaf die, all from PTI.   The sentiment is from Women of Life from PTI too.  I added a light pink pearl on the top of the teapot.  My aunt's birthday was yesterday and of course I didn't get a card in the mail, so I'll have to give this to her soon!
 
I used this sketch from Deconstructed Sketch

The JUGs design team did a fabulous job with this photo.  Here are the blogs you should visit.
