This is also for yesterday's TLC418 challenge - gotta love circles and last weeks ways to used it challenge - WT415 - sponging.
TLC264 - dp by me, TLC304 - faux or real stitching
I made the top dp panel using Stampin Up's "Morning Cup" set. I stamped the teacups and teabags with versamark ink and then embossing with white detail embossing poweder. coloured in the teacups and the teabags. Added the liquid pearl dots. I used two different dp's on the bottom part of the base panel. Matted the papers with white cardstock. Added the wide pink ribbon, sewed around the edges. Glued the panel to the textured dark pink panel. Stamped HM image with memento black ink, coloured with tombow and stampin up markers. Cut out image with circle spellbinder. Left the image in the die and sponged regal rose around inside of circle. Cut out a scalloped pink curcle, sponged edges. Placed a paper doiley underneath and sewed around image circle. Made the sentiment panel. Applied liquid pearl dots around scalloped edges. Stamped a mini teacup, coloured and cut it out using my exacto knife. Attached to sentiment panel. Image and sentiment panels are popped up. Finished inside of card. And it's ready to be mailed off to one of my teapotter sister's :)

So many lovely teacups on this pretty card, sure to tickle a teapotter many times over! I LOVE your top layer home made dp! It definitely does not look like you created it, great work! With the added sewing, doily and liquid pearls, makes one sweet feminine card~

Your homemade DP for the top panel is amazing! I was looking at it wondering how you had such a perfect paper and then I realised it was embossed. The doily is a perfect setting for the Rosehip tea :D. I'm very impressed with your circular stitching - I rarely push myself that far!!
