Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you had a great weekend! A new challenge launched over at UnstampaBelles last Monday and today is my showcase day on the blog! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #92 – Tea In The Garden! The twist this month is Watercolor Wonders.  The twist is not mandatory to play but we’d love to see your creativity and it will put you in the running for DT Favorite! And there’s a prize in the mix… a $15 AU gift voucher… so let’s see what you got!

I created a friendship card using a teacup and flowers die along with a purple and green watercolor background. I am so in love with this card – I think it’s one of the prettiest cards I’ve ever made in all my years of crafting. I’m going to send it to my daughter.  :)


There are multiple layers of the flowers and teacup. I used a gold paint marker to accent the rim, handle and saucer. I used two different prints of skinny Washi Tape. The front and inside sentiments are Tim Holtz Metallic Quotations stickers.


I decorated the inside with leftover strips of the watercolor paper and cardstock used on the front.


One more look at the dimension of the teacup and flowers. I’ve had this die in my stash for several years and this is the first time I’ve used it. Not sure why… it’s absolutely gorgeous!
