TSG Friendship Tea

First, BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my daughter. She turns 20 today!! :) Love ya, E!

I made this card using the new Tea For Two sets from There She Goes. I made the card for today's Limited Supplies Challenge (LSC193)....BUT!....I goofed and added brads....wasn't supposed to do that. Oops, disqualified!!

I stamped two teacups (from Tea for Two) onto white CS with Versafine Black Onyx, then stamped two more onto the Wassail DP. The teacup on the left was cut out and paper pieced, the teacup on the right was cut out and it's popped up on a SU Dimensional (the handle on the one on the right is paper pieced). The steam...loooove the steam stamp!...was stamped in Versafine Black Onyx as well and then I added some Platinum Stickles to make them sparkle. See the black panel behind the main image? I don't know if you can see it in the picture but I stamped the steam all over that panel in Versamark and then heat embossed it in Clear EP. The Kraft Scallop layer and black circle behind the sentiment (from Tea for Two Special Blend) are also up on Dimensionals.

The inside of the card has more of the Wassail DP, matted with Basic Black. I also stamped this sentiment...and more steam (see, told you I love that stamp, LOL!) from the Tea for Two set.

The velvet ribbon is from Stamper's Dream. The cocoa brads are from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts.
