Double Challenge Card 6/8 Teaparty and Midnight Madness

Hi! This is a double challenge card. 1st challenge is for Teapot Tuesday. This week our hostess with the mostess is Bonnie! We needed to bring pretties for Darla the Dragonfly and her daughter. There are 42,000 reasons we need to do this so everyone needs to join in the fun!! Fabulous teapot, storyline, and card today Bonnie! Thank you! Read about it here.

The 2nd challenge is the Midnight Madness Sketch brought to us by the oh so talented Priscilla! Read about it here.
My image is from Penny Black and was watercolored and matted. I chose this image because the bears are ever so sweet and they have brought us all honey and even brought along their bees and beehive! My bottom layer is SU DP and I ran it and the envelope through the Swiss Dots EB Folder. I added three tiny gems on the right corner and in the spaces left from my MS Corner Punch. Now it has been told to me that these gems are worth 500.00 apiece! YIKES! They are very much appreciated Miss Peggy!! Wink,Wink! I then used doilies I picked up at Walmart in the candymaking section. I then used a doodlebug trim on the middle and added a tiny gingham bow to the left corner. The inside has the SU DP and I punched the opposite side from the outside. This was so much fun to make! My gd Ariel helped me choose today and this was approved by her! LOL Thanks for looking! Comments always appreciated!
