You're My Cup of Tea!

Hi all....Happy Friday the 13th! :-))))


Starting with a Kraft card base I added the pieced patterned papers. The blue papers and the top pink are from Cupcake Cards and Crafts the pretty lattice paper is from my stash.  I cut a scallop border from the pretty blue polka-dot patterned paper and added it to the upper portion of the card front.

A length of white grosgrain ribbon was added horizontally to the center adding a pink button and a foam glittered heart to the center further embellishing with a memory stick pin. 


A heart was die-cut using a leftover piece of white card stock and then run through my crimper adding some pink craft paint and tea stain to the edges. A heart doily was added to the left portion of the card front placing the crimped heart on top. 

A darling tea cup was paper pieced and added to the center of the heart embellishing with a pink button and paper roses. 

The finishing touch includes adding the beautifully script sentiment. 


Inspiration for my card was found at The Ribbon Reel - use the colors in the photograph plus use a heart, sparkle and ribbon.
Thanks for visiting with me!
