Tea For Two--MFTSC#89

I'm using My Favorite Things Sketch for this week--#89--for this card. This challenge and the new My Favorite Challenge starts today, so head on over to the forum and check it out!

I'm using My Favorite Things' Tea For Two, which seems to be sold out right now, but keep checking back. The patterned paper is from the new Lemonade collection by Basic Grey and my card stock is Rose Red and Sage Shadow. The focal image was stamped on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxudo Black ink and colored with Copic markers, then matted and popped up on 3M foam squares. I did some paper piercing in the corners of the base card Rose Red layer and added the sentiment. I love this little mousie in the tea cup, don't you?

So, hop on over the the forum and join in the chat and challenges--we'd love to see what you come up with!
