Simply Challenged! ~ July 30 Challenge ~ Heavy on the Embellishments!

Hello, everyone! Time for another fun challenge over at Simply Challenged Challenges! This challenge is all about the embellishments! We want to see lots and lots of flowers, bling, or anything else you can think of, on your creations!

I don't know about you but when I make cards, I don't use a lot of embellishments. On layouts, I don't really have that problem. I think because I view it the cardstock as such a large place to put embellishments and cards just look so small to me. (I'm working on it, though).

Here is my creation using Beauty Spa Rio from the Hollywood Teens Line from SBS!

Check out the challenge and all the fun creations from the rest of the Design Team at these links:

MAD Tea Party - A Fanciful Twist's 6th Annual Mad Tea Party!

Good day, all! It's Tea Time! I look forward to A Fanciful Twist's annual Mad Tea Party all year long! I am so excited to participate again this year. I just recently moved and have not found all of my Alice in Wonderland goodies, so I concentrated more on the confections than the decor. Come on in and take a seat; have some tea, grab a sandwich or two, some cupcakes, and a slice of cake! There is plenty for you all!

Don't mind the toadstools and pick up a cup. Any cup you choose is fine.

Here are some delectable almond chicken salad sandwiches.

Feeling devilish? Here are some deviled eggs for you.

Would you like some Green Pea Salad? It's delicious!

Mr. Hedgehog has been visiting as well. He loves hiding behind the tea pots as he nibbles on his treats.

Do you prefer iced tea? Here are some chess-shaped ice cubes to cool you and your tea.

So many sweets to choose from! Here are some Banana Peanut Butter Cup cupcakes.

Perhaps you'd also enjoy some Lemon Cream Cheese cupcakes. 
We have Vanilla Meringue Cookies as well. 
Clean cup, clean cup! Move down!

Oh, these are wonderful Strawberry cupcakes. Please have some!

And of course, what's a Mad Tea Party without a towering cake? This one is Chocolate and Strawberry.

We are so happy to have had you over! Thank you for stopping by!

If you would like to win the Queen of Hearts card above, please follow me and leave a comment. If you are already a follower, let me know in your comment. I will do a random drawing for the winner on July 18th.

See you all at the other tea parties!
