You're My Cup of Tea!

Inspiration Photo...

Hi Friends!

How are you?  I haven't entered a challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room in quite awhile,
so I thought I'd give it a whirl!  It is indeed one sweet challenge!  We were to use the colors
teal or aqua, pink, and brown.  Go over and check out all the divine inspiration from the design team!  You will not be disappointed!!

I have been posting cards on my iPad, but thought I'd try on my husband's laptop.  It just
seems easier on the laptop.

Anyways, this card was fairly easy to put together.  I just love the digital image of the tea cup!  I sponged it with ink and colored the tiny flowers and leaves.  And, I am not ashamed that I got out the magnifying glass to assist me...hehehe!  Don't those chocolates look yummy?!  Well, I got hungry for chocolate and made some brownies...mmm!  But, I didn't frost them, so that's good for my diet, isn't it?!:-) 

Well, thanks so much for dropping by today!  Whatever ya do today hope ya have fun, take care!
