cuppa anyone?

So, last night I was clearing off my craft counter (note I said clearing and not cleaning. All I really did was tossed it in a box for sorting later) and I came across a scrap of DCWV Nana's Nursery striped paper and a Blue Bayou card base. They match purty well. I also had a SEI tag (from last years CKC convention) in my french board. I knew right then that I had to make a card (I worked so hard shoving everything off the counter after all!).

Last week, I checked out the non-raffle prizes (are they called prizes if it's not a raffle?) and saw the most adorable stamp set by Flourishes! It was sold out, but I got my name on a wait list and snatched one up right away when they came back in stock. I *had* to ink my new set.

For this simple card I paper pieced the cup and saucer and popped the image panel up so that I could slide that cute SEI tag in. The edges of the cup piece and the tage are inked and the image is outlined with a Copic marker.

Recipe:
SU Solid card stock
DCWV Patterned paper
Flourishes Coffee with Friends stamp set
SEI tag
Target $ Spot Ribbon
SU Basic Black and Ranger Tattered Rose distress by Tim Holtz inks
Copic E21 Marker
