Inkspirations Colour Challenge #54

This time the team at Inskpirations Challenges have set a gorgeous colour challenge the colours being:
Aren't they just lovely!!! For some reason I looked at these colours and thought of the Share a Cup set (not sure why!!!) so I went with it and here is my card:-

I have used the Pear Pizzazz as the base colour and then followed by a piece of Vanilla (sorry non-SU here - I seem to have depleted my stock of Very Vanilla). The envelope is made with Blushing Bride and polka dotted to give it that extra touch. I then tied a lovely piece of pink stripey ribbon around it and used the little tea cup as the tag.

Now I have placed a tea bag inside the envelope but I forgot to take a pic of that but you get the idea. The label is made from the Big Shot "Lots of Tags" die layered over an Early Espresso curly label punch. Also, I don't know if you can tell but I have stamped the little cloud from the "Good Neighbours" set so that it looks like a little froth on top of the cup.

Now off to enter the challenge.

Happy Stamping,

LOVE this idea Karen - I am yet to put one of those cute little scallop envies on a card front, been meaning to for ages. Looks fab!

Karen your card is lovely, I love all you little details, the layering of the labels & thanks for pointing out you use of the cloud, it really is a great idea.

What a beautiful card, Karen! I just love all the little details (not least of which the use of the cloud stamp - how clever!). Great idea to use the little envelope on a card; I have the die, but haven't used it like that. This is really cute.

Ooh, this is just lovely. I love anything with teacups and the way you have created the envelope is just perfect. Gorgeous sentiment too.
