TPT #14 No Paper Roses Here!




I finally finished my card for Cindy's Teapot Tuesday Challenge from last week! As simple as this teapot really was, I struggled and struggled, gave up and then tried again, to make a paper flower that didn't look totally stupid for this card. I just couldn't do it, so I "cheated" and used the Stipple Rose from Stampin' Up. I also added some leaves because the flower looked so lost by itself. Is this now a "double cheat"? lol! This is a huge rose so cut out only the center of the flower. I think that I still capured the feele of the teapot but I'd like to know what you think... Either way, here it is... Hope your having a good day!

Cheaters, cheaters, never beaters! Espcially double cheaters! Bwahaha, just joshing!

You were so smart for not making a stupid paper rose! The one I made about killed me! You are smarter than me! Snort!
