Friendship Tea

Welcome to another week!  It's the first Monday of the month, so that means it's contest week over at Mojo Monday!  We'll have up to seven winners, so be sure to play along this week for a chance at the Verve stamp set of your choice! 

For my sample sketch card, I started with these really shabby, girly Annalee papers by Prima.  Next I pulled out the A Cup of Life set and had a little masking fun, stamping two of the teacups several times, stacked on top of one another and then coloring in with baja breeze and regal rose markers.  I used the steam swirl for a little accent on my sentiment circle, and the friend sentiment stamp is from Text Objects.  Underneath that I added a little Sentiment Flags die from Lil' Inker Designs and for my upper circle, I just added a partial circle and accented with some Swarovski Crystals and the teardrop rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.  I finished off with some Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon and distressed edges.

Okay, I'm suffering through another bout of tendinitis in my wrists, so I'm going to cut this short and just leave you with the Enabler's list...
