TPE 150

I thought I would stop in really quick this morning and post my card for The Pink Elephant challenge. This week there is a great inspiration photo to work with. This came at the perfect time for me. I have a co-worker having a birthday in a couple of weeks and she is a huge...really huge tea drinker. Here is my card...and her birthday card.

I pulled from the row of hanging cups. After I got my card all put together I noticed that my blue and tan cups are backwards..darn it. To create the woodgrain on my "shelf" I inked up my woodgrain impression plate with kraft ink and ran it through my Big Shot.  I needed hooks for my cups to hang from. My daughter came up with the idea of the pearls. She can be pretty helpful (shhhh don't tell her I said that) haha. When it comes to sentiments I love taking from different sets and using different sizes and styles. Love how this turned out...so fun.

I attached the tea cups with my dots. It's just enough to make them look like they are really hanging.

Here is the inspiration photo.
Thanks for stopping by today. Off to wash my car..it looks tan but it's really black...darn pollen.
