Inspired By Challenge #141 -- Tweet Tea

I'm joining Inspired By Challenge #141 after seeing the graphic and cards by
the design team. How could I resist? Here's my card, minus the tweet because
I thought my card was busy enough without the bird.

And it was a good chance to hunt for my ancient Spellbinders Reverse 
Wonky Rectangle Dies after seeing stamping pal Ivy recently use them
on some cards. This set is about 10 years old and was one of my favorites
to use as a card base.

I die cut two teacups and ink distressed them and cut one out of washi tape 
that was adhered to white card stock. I layered the cups and added some 
leaves then stamped the sentiment. The two panels are joined with a hinge
and I debossed the die into the panel first to give it a finished edge.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Edited to add: I'm honored that my card was chosen as the winner for the challenge.
Thanks so much to Laurel and the team!

  7. Wow, I love this tea cup card, Donna! Your ink-distressed cups with water spatters are exquisite! And you cleverly used the lovely floral washi tape for the middle cup to add a different element. The shape of the card (and it rocks, doesn't it?) is fresh and perfect for the stacking-cup-design.
