Delight in a 'Cup of Tea'

Sponsoring this weeks challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations 
is STAMPlorations and a bunch of their Designers
have been supporting this challenge as Guests.
I was one of those and now I decided to
add another card to the gallery.
I recently purchased the Poppy Die called Teacup Stack
and thought this a perfect opportunity to try it out.
I cut it in the red white and black carefully
trying to keep as many pieces together so I could
pick what I wanted where. I then cut another piece out
of jac paper to stick my main piece to the card stock.
I took my inspiration this time from
those tiny hearts on top of that yummy looking icing.
Just looking at them made me hunger for something sweet.
My card base is black topped with red then
and stencilled through it with red acrylic paint
add some random grunge from
then added my sentiment from
I thought the sentiment went nicely
with a cup of tea. I do enjoy mine
first thing in the morning (and out of a teapot)
Finished with corner rounding on side.

which I added to the top cup.
Thanks so much for popping in today.
