Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge-May 2016!

Hi, Friends!

It's time once again for the Paper Sweeties Monthly Challenge!  I just love the beautiful inspiration photo of the lovely tea set!

A $20 gift certificate goes to one lucky winner of the challenge!  This is my second post for today, so please scroll down to see my card made for Dies R Us Challenge!

 And, here is my card...

For my card, I started with a white card base and added a polka dot panel from Simple Stories.  The tea pot was die cut using Sweet Cuts-Tea for Two and lovely paper from Crate Paper. The tea cups were stamped using Planner Series-Happy Icons.  The steam for the hot tea is from But, First Coffee.  And, the sentiment is from the set Tea for Two.  The window was made using the egg die from Sweet Cuts-Hippity Hoppity Easter Wishes.  

And, here is a peek at the inside of my card...

(Tea pot and sentiment is from Tea for Two)

Please hop along and view more inspiration from my teammates...
