Teacup Roses

Second post for me today.  If you're looking for my Sassy Studio Designs card, please scroll down one post.  Thanks.

This week's Play Date Cafe challenge has some really soft subtle colors to the inspiration piece.  Prior to the actual colors being posted on Friday, I had already started my card using some substitute Stampin Up! colors and a template I had downloaded years ago from House Of Stir Fry.  Once I had printed out my template, and taped it to my folded card, I cut out the shaped teacup, and then stamped my background images from Love Remains by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company directly onto the card in Tim Holtz tattered rose distress ink. 

Then after stamping my image from Relax a Bit, I pulled out my prismacolor markers and colored the teacup to match the inspiration picture.  Finally, taking some die cuts, punches and pearl stickers, I added the final elements to my card using glue dots, pop up glues, or Ranger Glossy Accents as needed.
