Lili of the Valley - Where there is tea there is cake!

I saw the uber talented and giant hearted Vicky make an apron card here last year and I CASED it here with one of my LOTV stamps.  I've CASED it again today, using a matching LOTV image, coloured in Copics and Promarkers.   I don't sew so the holes are pierced and the "stitching" hand drawn with a gel pen and I just added a few cutlery brads, a cookie cutter, a button and some ribbon for embellishment.   I also Stickled the icing sugar in the sieve that is tumbling down onto the cake.  My background paper is Whimsy by DCWV.   My photography leaves something to be desired unfortunately!

Thank you again, Vicky, for the inspiration! 

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
My Mum's Craft Shop -  45 Buttons and Ribbon (the flour pot is a button with the shank removed)
Truly Scrumptious - 74 All Creatures Great and Small
Our Daily Bread - 98 Other than a square or rectangle
Totally Gorjuss - 120 Yummy
Lili of the Valley Afternoon Tea (but first bake the cake!)

Sorry I haven't been visiting very much lately.  I was in Prague all last week on business but I shall try and catch up this week.
