Classic Elegance

That's the theme that the Shabby Tea Room has chosen for the challenge this week, using red, white and black.  Here is the photo inspiration:


I would love a kitchen like this, wouldn't you?  My eye was drawn to the curtains and the pitcher and plate with a toile-like pattern, so that's the direction I took:


supplies: white, black and red cardstock, Hero Arts CG245 Classic Fabric Design, versamark ink and white embossing powder, CL380 Truly Appreciated, CL495 Blossom Art, VersaFine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder, EK Success scallop border punch
