Still Lovin' Tea Shoppe

I'm really in denial about this set leaving Stampin' Up!'s catalog! It's so pretty! I thought it would be a fun set to use for this week's color challenge over at Create with Connie and Mary. These colors are so sweet together, and after seeing the beautiful cards made by their design team, I knew I had to jump in on this challenge.

2013 Thursday Challenges-013

The teacup is inked up with Basic Gray and Calypso Coral markers, stamped onto Whisper White card stock, and then hand cut. Once I got passed that, it was smooth sailing!
I added some soon to be retiring Designer Series Paper, a Pool Party scallop edge, and some cute little flowers from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (so glad that's staying!). So cute! I'm in love with my own card!
