just add ink #250 just add inspiration

another awesome challenge from the just add ink team

this time it was an inspiration challenge
 when i saw this all i could think of was a high tea with friends and copious amounts of tea and biscuits and china tea cups
 this is what i came up with
a card in a box using the from my heart stamp set from stampin up
i have also used some beautiful pink ribbons and lace and the gorgeous rosettes
punches used include the small butterfly and a border punch
 the cups were stamped in black and pink pirouette ink and fussy cut
 i cut around the from my heart stamp and utilised different aspects of it in different ways for the inside of the card in a box
 the front of the card with some bling and pearls
 the view from up top so you can see the mechanics of it
 the back of the card where you can write your greeting
a view from the side using spots from the kinda eclectic stamp set

hope this inspires you this week

cheers ears
