I started this card but placing the English Tea Party Doily in the center. I then made the tea cup as my focal point which I have explain below. I added the Add a Flourish which kind of looks like steam coming out of the cup. and then tucked in a couple of the sentiment hearts. The Paris Sign was layered on the top corner. I printed the sentiment out and then placed the paris 4 sign die over top of the printed sentiment so I could layer it on top of the sign. I stamped on the Pierced Banners and layered it along the bottom.
For this mothers Day card that I have created. I wanted to use a tea cup but didn't have a die for it so I used one of the vases from the Vase (Set of 4 and the Paris Signs 4 - B550 to create this tea cup. I cut the top off the vase and used one of the flourishes from the paris sign for the handle. I think it turned out pretty cool. I used the Felicity Tiny Doily - DL243 folded in half to set the tea cup on.
These hearts are from the Sweetheart Candy die set and works great even on a mother's day card. I really liked the hearts tucked into the flourishes.
