LOC NR - Floral Cup

I have been busy helping a friend at the Craft and Quilt Fair and am grateful that I have some cards to show you from the Layers of Color's July  new release - this is one of my favourite sets - Teacup Blessings art stamp sets.

The cards with this set on have been the first ones to sell at the Craft and Quilt Fair, it seems that everyone likes to feel they are giving their friends their best bone china when they serve a cup pf tea, and the Teacup Blessings art stamp set certainly makes that possible as far as cards go.

The cup has been coloured with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen, but out and popped up onto some embossed DP from KandCompany.  The gorgeous lace is a gift from a dear friend.

One of the fabulous things about this set is that it comes with numerous sentiments that can be added to the saucer and also the inside of the cup - it gives such a variety of occasions and adds such charm to an already delightful image.  I chose to keep this cup plain so it was able to be used for any occasion.

This card is for the following challenges:
Crafty Ann's - scallops and or fancy borders
 Crafty Catz - embossing
Phindy’s Place - vintage look
Stamp Man - anything goes
Charisma Cardz - Distressing
Craft Us Crazy - Anything goes in August
Crafty Sentiments - Punches and Die Cuts
Do You Stack Up? - Emboss it
