Happiness is a Hot cup of Tea!

Ok a new card, among a few others not yet finished this weekend.

Happiness is a Hot Cup of Tea:
 a few views :)

 Tea Pot and Tea cup digi images by SANDI SAMPLE
Sentiment Digi by TLC CREATIONS
Card stock by STAMPIN' UP
Embossing Folder by CUTTLEBUG
Markers by STAMPIN' UP
Liguid Pearls by RANGER
transparent barely lavendar Bling Pick by "Modern Romance"--HIRSCHBERG SCHUTZ & CO.
Lavender and aged white lace from stash, ribbon from stash
Gold paint pen-trim on teapot, cups and saucers.

 I fussy cut the embossed Card stock to create a window, raised it up on foam dots, then attached the Teapot and one tea cup(slightly behind the pot) then the other tea cup, which I had also fussy cut.
I trimmed the sentiment and attached it to the pink card stock I cut out of the center scrap, trimmed that and then attached it. I made a bow out of all three (ribbon and 2 laces) together, used large glue dots on the back, placed the pick on top of on of them, covered that same glue dot and wire with another glue dot. Placed the bow and pick where I liked, then used glue dots with the roses from Prima.

I was just thinking yesterday that I wanted to use some new Hot Tea stamps that I bought over the summer from Waltzing Mouse Stamps. Now I can't wait to get going, you have inspired me!
