tea anyone?

Another new set in the mini catalogue is called Tea Shoppe. Yep, you guessed it, its choc full of gorgeous vintage tea cups! 

Today's card is a CASE of a card my friend Vicky made. I haven't really changed it much just added a flower and pearl to one of my teacups. 

Suit me to a Tea

Stamp Set: Tea Shoppe
Ink: Marina Mist, Sahara Sand, Pretty in Pink
Cardstock: Whisper White, Marina Mist, Pretty in Pink
Punch: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border, itty bitty
Accessories: Pearls

This stamp is three cups in a row so I used the markers to colour in the tea cups different colours and then stamped them close to the bottom of the card. I punched the dotted scallop ribbon border punch and then sliced it in halp for an even thinner and more delicate strip. . I stamped the sentiment below, punched a flower and added a pearl to the centre. I just wanted to show you that  a card doesn't have to have every inch of the card covered in patterned paper, stamps, ribbon and accessories. Sometimes clean and simple cards are just as beautiful! 

Hope you liked this super quick and simple card! 

Happy Craftin',
