C4C-382 Teacup Hugs Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our April 2017 Hostess is Frances Byrne (for the second month), and our Guest Designer is Kristine Reynolds.  

Here is Frances' challenge:  "Yesterday was Tea Day ... so for our challenge this week let's incorporate something Tea related on our cards .... Not into tea then what about coffee!"

This is a challenge that is right up my alley! I love tea (or hot tea as it's referred to in the far south) and tea cups.

I cut Joset's teacup from a pretty floral paper then added white accents. Loving these doily's from Stampin' Up so added one here, as well as scalloped ovals and a stitched fishtail banner. I recently purchased the ivy from Susan's Garden (ECD) and it's just the perfect thing to add a little bit of greenery here and there.

The hugs was cut 3 times, then stacked to make a thicker - almost chipboard - word element.

Finally, here is a peek at the inside.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C382
