My Antique Tea Cup

For my sixteenth birthday, my mother gave me a tea cup.  I thought it was pretty and have held onto it through all these years and all our moves.  This is what it looks like.  It's an antique now just like me.  LOL

When I came across this digital image from Heart Song Designs, I knew I had to make a card with it.  You can see it's not exactly like my tea cup but close enough to remind me of it.  I like how the card came out.

Card Recipe:
5X7 card
Background Paper - DCWV Ciao Bella-which means "Hello Beautiful
Digital Image from Heart Song Designs.  Click on the link to see/purchase.  Leah has some cute images and is trying to raise money for a worthy cause.
Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut Cartridge for the Flowers and Leaves.  I cut the leaves at 1" and went over them with a stylus to get them to pop a bit.  The bigger flower was cut at 1 1/2", 1 1/4" and 1".  The smaller flowers were cut at 1 1/4", 1" and .75".  I curled the petals up, glued them together and added purple bling.
Ribbon - mine is from the Dollar bin at Michael's.
Purple ink to ink edges of circle the image is on.
Scallop circle cut at 4 in. from the Bloom Cricut Cartridge
Promarkers used to color digital image:
Cup Handles and rims - Sakura Metallic Gold Gel Pen
Roses - Lavender, Purple
Leaves - Apple
Scrolls - Meadow Green
Teacup/Saucer - Primrose, Soft Lime, Cool Grey1

Thanks for looking at a bit of my history today.  Goodness, that makes me feel old.  But I'm not.  Jacob told me the last time he was here that I was like a 20 year old so I'm sticking with him.  LOL.  God Bless You All.  Peggy
