A cup of tea

I've been playing with the new Lavender Tea Digi collection and just love the way Nikky has put this together for us. I was looking at the templates and will be doing some of them to make a little display but thought that maybe I would enjoy making a card out of one or two, so I printed the teapot template onto the back of one of the papers and then reduced the cup size so it looked like it was the right size for a teacup in comparison to the teapot. I then printed this onto a different paper and cut everything out.

I have used a Tonic dye for the mat, which I cut twice, once as a solid piece and then again using the lattice die. I filled a page with flowers and printed them out I have only used a few of them but the others will be put away to use later.
I added a line around the rim and bottom of the cup with a sparkly gel pen just to give a bit of definition and a bit of lace across the middle of the card although you can barely see it!  I love the cd's but have also got one set of the stamps and if I run out of ideas the digis in the collection will give me a kick start.

I'm entering this into the following challenges;
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything goes
Retarte no73 - Anything Goes
