Time for Tea

Hope you are having an amazing weekend! Thank you for stopping by my little blog to see this sweet creation, I am playing along with the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. It's really darling and I loved the colors and patterns the little pin cushion has so that is what inspired my card.

I started with a rich chocolate base and then cut 1 inch strips of patterned paper from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection (uber adorable!). The bottom is a strip of paper lace courtesy of the Martha Stewart doily lace punch.

The die cut frame is from Cricut's Sweethearts cartridge (my go-to frame by the way). I paper pieced the teacup stamp by stamping it once on the white cardstock and then stamping it again on my patterned cardstock. Fussy cut the cut part and voila - pretty patterned paper china cup.

Here is the inspiration photo...
