Enjoy the Season

Happy Monday, peeps! This card is for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #48--just under the wire, again ;-) I think it's mostly pretty self explanatory, but I'll explain a couple of things. The teapot and the holly are from a new Flourishes' set called, appropriately, Christmas Tea, stamped on a Cream Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers. I didn't have any ribbon the right shade of red, so I ended up threading a strip of card stock through the lace and it really worked well. Then, there's Stickles accenting the pot, the holly, the sentiment, and the holly leaves. I have a little book called The Teas Of Christmas and this image reminds me of it. Cute!

Thanks for dropping by today!
