Tea Break Greeting Card

Do you like the Retro 50s style that is so popular in Home d├ęcor and Fashion design at the moment?
I've noticed that the trend is also reflected in some scrapbooking kits.

Tea Break is a fun and girlie kit with a vintage feel by Australian Company Kaisercraft.
I especially love the retro fonts and diner word art in the journaling and die cuts.

Here is a greeting card I made this week using the range. The flowers are by Prima and brads from Bo Bunny The Avenues. Round girl sticker is by Glitz Designs Cashmere Dame.

Bo Bunny The Avenues Card

I have been taking time out from digital scrapbooking and discovered some beautiful new paper scrapbooking ranges.
Here's a card I made using Bo Bunny's 2013 range The Avenues. If you would like to make one yourself, a full list of supplies is below.
This card was inspired by the photo below. I wanted to echo the shuttered windows, the fence garland and the foliage that drapes over the house.
