This week is Tickle a Teapotter week and it's all about the Tea! So grab a cup of soothing tea and enjoy the gallery of SCS this week!
Our theme is not just about the tea, but the Asian / Oriental theme. So I went with the colors of red and gold. Granted this card shows so much better IRL!
It has the Chinese symbols for Wisdom and Love and bamboo stamped with Versa Mark and clear ep. The center panel is one of the new Spellbinder D-Lites, done in gold and red.
You cannot see it here, but the inside has a gold panel with the bamboo stamped and embossed all over, with the word Joy. Whichever Teapotter gets this, it can be used for several occasions.

Oh my, doesn't this just capture the elegant lacquer-ware look! It reminds me of some of the designs in the coffee shops we used to go to when we were little - they were called Bewley's Oriental Cafes, and were themed accordingly. I don't think they sell their tea in tins anymore, but I definitely have a black and gold and red one in the cupboard with my Jasmine tea in it.
The gold layered on gold is so rich looking!
