Tea Time Birthday


This was made for an order, as the recipient is not a fussy and frilly person, this is what I created.

For the feature panel I used a stamp that I won from a challenge on a Christian Cardmakers Group on Facebook.
 It is called Tin Can Mail by Inkadinkadoo.

I coloured it with Prismcolor pencils, and added a gold band on the cup and saucer and some accents on the tin with a signo metallic pen. 

Both rectangles were cut with Memory Box Stitched rectangle dies, and the sentiment gold embossed on the lower one.  They were both mounted with an edging of narrow lace.

The final details were these rhinestone flowers in opposite corners.
