Tea for Two

Hi there. What a strange couple days it has been here in WNY. The weather has been very off lately. It is super sunny the one minute, and seriously the very next it is a torrential down pour. Then yesterday the earthquake in Canada was apparently felt all over our area as well...although I didn't feel a thing...lol. Tornado warnings, etc...just crazy. I guess it just makes the day more adventurous...ha ha.
Well today during the down pour, I decided to work on a card for a challenge. I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch, and also did the Simon Says Challenge which is You Gotta Have Friends. Here is what I came up with. I used this image I stamped off at a friend's house about a year ago. I THINK it is from High Hopes, but I am not positive. I colored it with twinkling H2Os and water color crayons.
I cut it out, and layered it onto some pink CS. I then layered that onto purple CS, and mounted that with foam tape. Now...the ribbon...well I spent like 10 minutes making this fancy folded ribbon only for it to not show at all...lol. It was the first time I had ever done it, and I was kinda proud of how it turned out for the first time, but...I guess it was more of a waste of time...ha ha. I made my own PP using some teal blue CS, and stamping a teapot and teacup in white ink. Hard to see, but I tried to get a close up for you.
It looks neat in person at least. I added 3 teacup brads, and the sentiment is from a Papertrey set. I mounted that with foam tape also.

Well that is it for now. Thanks for looking!

Adorable card! Love the image panel and the color combo. Too bad the ribbon didn't show up! I felt the earthquake in Michigan yesterday.
