Sweet 'n Sassy Release Day - Special Blend


Yippee!  It's my favorite time of the month again...release week with Sweet 'n Sassy!  So much fun and so many great new sets to see!  Today's we're showcasing the new set, Special Blend.  A few days ago I shared a sneak peek of a card using this set, Thanks a Latte, and today I'm back with an ode to an English tea party...at least that's what I think of with this image and designer paper. 
 
I had this paper in my stash and loved the look of it paired with kraft cardstock.  It's like an old fashioned wallpaper, isn't it?  And I thought the paper would be perfect with this sweet stack of tea cups, which reminds me of my Grandmother.  She has an extensive collection of china tea cups and when I was little nothing made me happier than to sip my juice from one of those cups!
 
After stamping the image in Memento ink, I colored the cups with Copic markers and then popped up the tea bag with foam tape.  The inside of my card contains the rest of the sentiment...
Love this set?  Ready to see more?  Visit each of the DT blogs listed below!  And don't forget to leave a comment along the way for an opportunity to win prizes!!  Enjoy!
