Afternoon Tea!

The head of our Red Hat Society chapter, Queen Mel, is away this weekend and, as I am the Vice Queen, I have arranged for a get together.  This month we are taking Afternoon Tea at the Waterside Tea Rooms in Maldon in Essex. The Tea Rooms are owned by my neighbour Sue and this is a little 'thank you' I made for her.

The box lid has been smeared with utterly gorgeous SU's Rich Razzlebery ink bought from Mrs Fab aka Monica of My Many Many Passions along with the ribbon of the same colour. Designer papers by SU as well and flowers from Wild Orchid.  I used a Grand Nestabilities label to cut the card and smaller label dies for the greeting.  I hope she likes it.

I'd like to enter this card into the following :
