Rewind: Scene Card

Today is the day I am hopefully coming home from the hospital, and it's my birthday!  I'm hoping my present is that I'm feeling much better and as calm as the scene below.




This is the first card that I made with the Cricut Circle French Manor cartridge, back in July of 2010. I was excited to see the exact chair from my parents' dining room set. I immediately cut it out, but then had no idea what to do with it. Luckily, I finally came up with something! Because of the size of the chair, I ended up making a pretty big card (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") that fits in an old unused Christmas card envelope.

Recipe:
(all materials Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise specified)

Cricut Cartridges: French Manor (table and chair), Walk in My Garden (vase and tulips), and A Child's Year (teacup)
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, New Leaf, and Plum Pudding
Patterned Paper: scraps from various DCWV stacks
Ink: Chai, Dark Chocolate, and Plum Pudding
Stamp Set: Tea for Two
Recollections Brads
Tea for Two Collection Die
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder for the beadboard

Here is a picture of the inside and a close-up of the front:
