The funny thing is I almost used the exact same two dsp pieces you used b/c I wanted to use the Tea for Two dsp. I had to rethink and find another part of the dsp to use. I then added very vanilla card stock at the bottom which was border punched, dry embossed and sponged.
I added a large bow as you did with a vintage flower in the center and a tiny silver teapot charm. I added 3 medallion punches above the ribbon with pearls and lightly sponged the dsp. On the left-hand corner, I added a little banner that is stamped "tea"rific", with little pearls and sponging which I popped up with dimensionals.
My mother is British, so something tells me I'll be holding onto this card and give it to her on a special occasion.
Thanks for looking and, Jennifer, your gallery is awesome.

Oh, Pam, your bow really steals the show here! Your added flower and tea trinket are perfect accessories! And, I didn't know there was a proper way to make tea! Here's what I always do: measure the water, pour in the pan over the burner on the stovetop, add my teabag, bring to a slight boil, turn burner off and wait about a 1/2 hour. The tea is so much stronger that way and I always add way more water than it calls for (so I get to enjoy more tea)! Love that senti.~
