Cup of Tea

Hi friends!  It's Friday again and time for a brand new sketch over on the Viva la Verve blog.  This week's hostess is the lovely Stacey.

I received a shipment of out of stock stamps this week, so couldn't wait to pull out the One Cup set for a little inky time.  Although my cough has finally subsided, I still have a very scratchy throat (probably from months of continuous coughing), so I've been drinking less coffee and more tea lately. The Lost & Found Antique paper pad from My Mind's Eye caught my eye when I was looking through paper, so pulled it out and went with a black, cream and red theme.

I'm also on a kick to use some of the mountains of washi I keep collecting.  So a washi banner up top was a must, just folded over a piece of twine and adhered to the card.  Next I stamped the sentiment from One Cup on a Rounded Rectangle die cut and colored with Copics.  I also colored a piece of cream cardstock with Copics and cut out with the Award Banner Trim die to match my colored tea cup.  I finished off with some bows on the ends of my banner and a little matching washi on the sides of my sentiment panel.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous start to your weekend!
