Tea for Two

Breaking out a new stamp set! I've actually had Tea for Two sitting on my desk for sometime, waiting, SCREAMING to be used. I attempted to try and not make my card super thick (lots and lots of layering) with over embellishing and tying a finishing bow...think I succeeded!
Teapot detail. To add a little more depth to my teapot I decided to ink the entire image with my sage dewdrop, and then on the outer edge I added a darker tea leaves ink. Really helps the pot to stand out.
The background on the card base is Damask Designs and Text Style II. Believe it or not, I actually used 2 different browns, but the Text Style wording comes off as pinkish mauve?! It set my color scheme to go vintage with the rest of the card.
I'm off to cleaning up my garden beds and enjoy this beautiful Spring day!

I'm ready for a cup of tea for sure now, Dawn! Love the colors and the simple, non-layered look. Enjoy your gardening!
