my cup of tea.




So, I was on a mission on Friday to use some of my new PTI goodies.  I tend to scour the web for inspiration and came across this gorgeous card by 
Melissa Phillips << --- love her stuff.

Can I tell you that I ♥♥♥ the Phrase Play stamp/die?!
{although it really should have 'cup of coffee' too}


The paper is Basic Grey/Fresh Cut (ala Kimberly) and the bloom? It's from the Fresh Cut collection also (ala Sherry).


I hope that my original inspiration didn't get lost in translation....



I was inspired by the die cut/sentiment and blooms.  I also tried to capture the overall color scheme along with incorporating the green gingham.
