A Spoon Full of Tea Bag folded Donkeys?

It is Tuesday and time to get a Spoon Full of Challenge! This week is a great Sketch by our DT member Caryn!

As soon as I saw the sketch I was excited! It was perfect to use my brand new Tea bag folding stamps from Alota Rubber Stamps!!! And I had this plan to mix two different stamps. I love how it came out.. and not just because the Donkey is named "Michelle's Donkey" LOL~

If you have never tried one of Helene's Tea Bag folding images you just must! They are very addicting - you stamp 8 of the image, color and then follow the instructions for folding, they just slip together and just a few dots of glue they make a circle of images!

Along with MY Donkey.. he he I added the Daisy! For the center for my circle I added a pink felt flower with a button tied with a pink ribbon. I really do love how this came out and I think I will redo this with different background paper - because I am not happy with how the entire card turned out. It doesn't look quite as bad in person, the photo has made the colors look odd.


I used DCWV glitter papers and sewed everything down - I think it is the vintage lace that is wrong - the color on it is not really that dark.. oh well. I then added four flowers and brads with the H and I letters. Again.. I think next time I will do simpler papers just too much going on here - L0L

Make sure to hop on over to the Spoon full of Sugar Challenge and see the other DT cards - theirs really rock! and there is a great prize again this week!

Well long list today... better get started - Hope you have a great Tuesday!
