Tea for Two - Stampin' Up! Balloon Celebrations

  The whole point of participating in challenges is to stretch yourself and your supplies to create something that is outside of your comfort zone.  I saw the Tea Party theme over at The Paper Players and thought for sure that this is one that I would skip since I don't have any tea related stamps.  Then I started looking and digging and reading all of the sentiments I owned and decided that yes I think maybe I could participate in this challenge.

  The only tea stamp I had is in the Balloon Celebrations stamp set so that is what I went with by default.  It's stamped in Soft Suede and then I cut the banner and did some faux stitching.  The card base is the soon to be retired Soft Sky with the front embossed with Quilt Top embossing folder.

  I layered a little bit of Garden Green cardstock behind a strip of Coffee Break DSP.  Then I fussy cut  2 cups from another of the papers.  I popped the cups up on some punched circles and that's it.  

  I think I should go back and add some ribbon or something.  I think I was so intent on making this tea card out of my limited supplies that I missed some embellishment opportunities!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
