Shabby Elegance

I love how the creative process works, when the place you begin takes you somewhere you did not expect to go.  I recently purchased the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Bell Jar die.  I was going to cut wood grain DP and acetate for the glass and place some yummy confection in the middle.  I had good results doing this with another project. Well, I got to thinking after I cut the base, could this be a table?  Well yes it could and here's where I ended up:

So you can see my table has a lace table cloth.  The picture does not show the sparkle Glimmer glaze I brushed onto the lace. The chairs were in my stash from a recent technique using Distress re-inkers and baby wipes..  I recently ordered the Glitz stickers which had all kinds of lovely "reserved" phrases.  I liked how they worked with the Luncheon theme.

Here is the inspiration photo behind this card:

I really love this photo from The Shabby Tea Room Rustic Elegance challenge, week #136.   


Here are a few close ups:


I layered the top panel of the card onto a piece of burlap.




I will also be entering this card into the following challenges:
