I kept her tea theme and used the basic layout but changed the colors and stamps and papers. You can find instructions for my card below:

HCPC 3469-Tattered Blossom Swirls
HCPC 3472-China Fragments PreCut set

other supplies: white, kraft, sage shadow cardstock; Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Ranger distress inks in Antique Linen and Walnut Stain, Pink Pirouette ink SU, copic markers, seambinding, vintage stick pin
Fold Sage Shadow card base so it is 4.25" x 4.25". Ink edges with Walnut Stain ink. Cut kraft cardstock to measure 4"x4". Stamp Tattered Background in Antique linen distress ink and ink edges with Walnut Stain ink. Cut white cardstock panel to measure 2.25"x3.5". Stamp Tattered Swirls in pink and ink edges with Antique linen ink. Mat white panel with Sage cardstock that measures 2.5" x 3.75" and ink edges. Stamp two tea cups and two handles onto white cardstock in black ink and use coordinating dies to cut. Color with copic markers and sponge distress inks to shade. Adhere to white panel by stacking your tea cups. I used foam dots to pop the bottom teacup and add dimension. Stamp sentiment under teacups. Punch a whole where card folds and tie seam binding in a bow over kraft panel that is showing. Add stick pin to center of bow.

Emily, this card is truly beautiful. That teacup is so sweet and I love the soft colors you used on it. The card is further enhanced with the feminine white bow and pink pearl pin. Thank you for honoring me this week. How great that post all those instruction! Thanks.
