In keeping with my New Year's Resolution I have been using up scraps and re-organizing my stash! ..What was I thinking!!! Yesterday was 'clean out your template file' day and I found this tea cup from about 1994! Seeing the fabulous site for to-day's challenge I was inspired by this set. http://www.patinastores.com/catalog/...r-one-set.html . The background is unknown paper that I embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The cup is cut from the enormous pile of patterned wall paper in a drawer and decorated with the hydrangea punch from Martha Stewart and leaves from Nellie Snellen punches. The sparkly lines are from Peel-offs stickers. Maybe I should send this card to the Queen since I see the Royal Warrant on the tea bag so it must be her most favourite kind and she has been under the weather lately!
