Primrose Tea

You know what I love?  I love it when I get an idea for a card and it all comes together in oh, ten minutes, and I like the result.  Lucky for me, that happened today!  (Also lucky for me, I'm starting to get over this stomach bug malarkey.  Yay!)


Yeah, the thing that took the longest for this card was cutting out the teacup.  Other than that, super easy-peasy.  The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches, I loooove this kinda sketch!

And the color combo is courtesy of Dynamic Duos:


At first I was looking for some So Saffron DSP, but then I found that Summer Starfruit pattern from Patio Party and it was big enough for a card front layer, so I just went with it.  I kinda like the small floral pattern with the teacup anyway, so that was kismet.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies (all SU!):
Stamps:  Tea Shoppe
Ink:  Primrose Petals, Early Espresso
Paper:  Primrose Petals, Whisper White, Patio Party DSP
Accessories:  Primrose Petals stitched satin ribbon, Dimensionals
