I made this card for my MIL, who is turning 91 next week. I thought she'd love this teacup filled with flowers.
I sponged around each of the blooms with a corresponding ink color (daffodil delight for large blooms, crushed curry for small) and then used my Stampin' write marker to add veins to the petals in Calypso coral to tie it to the color of the teacup.
The "tablecloth" is pear pizzazz DP and I used pear pizzazz card stock for the leaves and ferns.
Luckily, the Ways To Use It challenge today is to use designer papers - yay!

Tea-riffic! It caught my eye right away. One of the best, if not the best teacup filled with flowers card I've seen. Perfection! If I tell you that I'm turning 91, will you send me a card like this? You MIL will love it. Beautifully done. TFS
