Tea-riffic Birthday

Hello Everyone!  How are you guys today?  I am looking forward to the weekend.  Last weekend was such a busy one that I don't feel like I had a day off.  Hopefully I can get some crafting in this weekend!  What are your plans for the weekend? Well enough rambling let me show you what I made.  Today I have a birthday card, I'm getting low on those and need to build up my stash.  It's a rather simple card.



All of my solid paper is from the Recollections South Beach pack.  My background paper is from my scrap box.  The card base is 6 X6 and each layer is 1/4 each smaller.  I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Die Blossom (the largest one in the pack) to cut a matt for my image.  I then ran it through my cuttlebug using the bloom dots folder.  Using a Martha Stewart ink (sorry don't know the color - I'm at work, shhhhh) I ran it across the embossed image.  I added my adorable tea cup, which is cut at 3 inches from the Kate's ABC's cartridge using foam squares. I also used foam squares to adhere the embossed layer to give it some dimension.  I hand cut the matt for my AWESOME sentiment.  The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Art Stamps - Coffee & Tea for You & Me.
