My Cup of Tea

Good morning! This week's Serendipity Stamps DT challenge was to use left overs (scraps of cardstock or ribbon, etc.) on our cards.

I always save every last bit of patterned paper and I had some skinny strips left over - I knew now would be the perfect time to bring them together. I love how they look all lined up.

I used the You're Just My Cup cling set, which is one of Serendipity's new releases. I paper pieced the teapot on the front and added it to my card along with some bits of twill and crocheted lace.

I didn't want to add to add anything else to my very busy card front, so I added the sentiment and little coordinating teacup to the inside. Cute stuff!

I'm so glad you stopped by today, please be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see their take on the challenge!
