My Cup of Tea

Julie Warner - justwritedesigns -

Today’s sketch challenge (SC369), was for me,  a real challenge! It looks great on Taylor’s Abracadabra card, but it gave me fits. It just felt awkward to me to add that strip across the bottom so in the end I just tacked on some little butterflies. Oh well.

I used a couple of new sets from Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped the teacup full of flowers then stamped the greeting on vellum and placed it on top. IRL, the teacup is a little more obvious. The frame was stamped and the inside cut out and placed on top of the vellum. I stamped another frame in yellow and a third was white embossed on cobalt. I had to cut these two apart to fit them around the original frame.

For my diagonal strip, I punched two strips of the cobalt and put a piece of ribbon down the middle. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
