Tea Time Birthday Card

Hello all my crafty friends.  I got to spend some time in my craft room today, so I made a card for my
stepdaughter's birthday.  When I asked her what she wanted, one of the things was an Iced Tea Maker from Teavana.  I asked "what is Teavana?".  Well let me tell you, Teavana is this wonderful tea store.
They sell all types of loose leaf tea.  Now I like tea, but am not a crazy tea drinker, but after finding this
store, I may become one!!  The have they most aromatic, delicious teas!! 

I not only bought her the Iced Tea Infuser and a gift set of teas, I bought the Iced Tea Infuser and some loose leaf teas for my husband and I too!!  This might become a new obsession!!

So, to go along with what I hope is a wonderful gift, I made Monique a tea themed birthday card!!

I used the Love You A Latte cartridge.

I cut the teapot at 3".

The teacup was cut at 1.5"
Both faces come from the new Peachy Keen
April Stamp of the month.

This little tag is from My Creative Time
Teeny Tag Greetings Die.
The sentiments are all from
the Peachy Keen April Stamp of the Month.

The teapot is mounted on an Action Wobble.

All the paper is from
DCWV Cafe Mediterranean
cardstock matstacks.
I added some My Craft Spot crinkle ribbon
in Light Denim and some trim
from Creative Iamginations
along with some twine and a few gems.

I really hope that Monique likes her gift
and her card!!

I will be entering this in the following challenges:

Wobble Wobble,

I never use to like tea either, but I have acquired the taste for it after going to this real high class coffee/tea house awith a friend nd now and just love it. If you get the real good tea-loose leaf like you did-you will start to love it too:)
