Fusion Card Challenge - Tea & Bouquet

Hi there blog friends ~ It's time for a new challenge at Fusion and this time our prompt is Tea & Bouquet.  I thought it would be fun to combine the layout from the sketch with the color palette on the inspiration photo...and this is what I came up with ~

I love a CAS design, so I embossed the Stitched Arch and blended Distress Inks for the pattern on the teacup. I created a stencil with the steam shape die and added a touch of clear glitter marker to it for some sparkle. A scripty sentiment and another stitched border, and this card was ready to mount on a hot pink base!

Don't forget the best thing about the Fusion Card Challenge is that you can choose between the sketch and the inspiration photo, or both! As always, my teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire you, so feel free to stop by the challenge blog and play along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Stamps: PTI - Keep it Simple - Thank You
Dies: PTI - Fancy Teacup; MFT - Stitched Arch STAX, MFT - Hot Cocoa Cups (steam)
Inks: TH DOX Inks - Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade; Gina K. Amalgam - Black
Misc: Spectrum Noir - Clear Sparkle Pen
