Violets and Tea

Happy Friday everyone!  I have been playing at different challenges all week and having so much fun.  Hope you have had a productive and happy week too!
Here is the card that I made for the Shabby Tea Room challenge, to "Make an Impression"!
I started off with this new tea stamp that I have from DRS Designs.  I think it quite elegant, but I wanted to create with an unexpected colour palette and these papers from DCWV "Summer Dream" were just the trick...I think ;)  I used a CB embossing folder called Ironworks for the main panel and layered under it another patterned sheet from the same matstack.  I also used a CB die for the two corners to carry out the ironworks design theme.  The tea cup image was stamped onto a white card stock and another aqua/teal pattern from the same little matstack.  I cut out the patterned teacup and coloured the white cs one, flowers only and then cut them out to adhere onto the teacup with foam.  I added a little teaspoon and teabag charm that I have had in my stash for probably close to 10 years!  The little tag is a MS punched one and I stamped Teatime with a PTI stamp and then added some more of this narrow silk ribbon that I purchased locally a couple of days ago.  So, that's it for now...thanks so much for looking!
