Happy Thursday and how about a spot of TEA?

Okay... confessions here!! I LOVE this WMS tea set and I LOVE teacups and... my DH and sister LOVE tea but, I am a BIG coffee drinker!! Anyway... I made a card for this week's WMS sketch challenge...


This is sketch 79 and used the colors from the CR84FN color challenge; medium blue, orange and yellow. Wasn't sure I could make these colors work but, was determined to do it!! Teacup was stamped in SU early espresso onto white cardstock and colored with copics. Added a little glitter to the inside and lower right corner... older teacups are shiny, you know. Popped the image on top of a circle nestie that was stamped with WMS Vintage Circles Small (Claire at WMS has an abundace of sets that are nestabilitie compatible!!) Sentiment was stamped on Authentique Journey dp and heat embossed with clear. Added some SU pompom trim, white bow with Websters Pages sparkler, TEA tag sentiment on SU tiny tag die tied off with divine twine from The Cats Pajamas and added a little stitching. The gingham background in daffodil delight is from WMS Gingham & Co.

Here's the sketch and colors...


















Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

Absolutely brilliant!! Love the teacup set too (but I'm hoping that Claire will make us a coffee set soon). Love the ribbon trims too! Great combination of challenges. Thanks for playing along with CR84FN!

A lovely card. The saucer idea is terrific. I will try to remember that next time I stamp a tea cup.
