The Disastrous Tea Party...or What Really Happened to Marie Antoinette

Alpha Stamps has been having fun with the theme "Marie Takes Tea" this month with lots of food and frills. There is something about playing with tiny things that is so appealing!
Those teeny little cakes and trays of sweets are adorable.
I made up a little story to go with all those tiny things, but I'm afraid poor Marie doesn't fair very well..........

The title medallion is from the digital French Labels Collage Sheet. I put it in Illustrator and scaled it up to the size I needed for the front of my box, printed a fancy typeface for the title and hand-colored the piece with copic markers.
I did the same thing for the inside story medallion.

There was a lavish spread of delicious food.

And quite a glittering crowd emerged to partake of the festivities!

They really enjoyed themselves.....

But alas, all good things must come to an end.

Oh, Marie, Marie.
You always were a little light in the brains department!
