A "Tea"-rific Birthday!

Here's the card I made for my grandma's birthday...
Her drink of choice is a cuppa tea, so I knew exactly which stamp set I wanted to use - Morning Cup! :)

Inside: "Hope you have a tea-rific birthday!"

I love the clean and simple layout of the designer paper, and that in using it, I used retired product (Parisian Breeze DSP)! yay! :)  Those of you who are demonstrators know why this excites me...well, those of you who are DSP Hoarders like myself. ;-)

There are other designs in the pack I like more, but this one spoke "Grandma" to me. :)

I stamped the image with Stazon ink onto our FABULOUS watercolor paper, then colored with our markers and aquapainter.  Finished it off with chocolate chip touches - the ribbon, the main image frame, and the scallop at the bottom.

Well, what do you think?

The Small Print (All Stampin' Up)
Stamps: Morning Cup
Ink: Stazon Black
Cardstock/Paper: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Watercolor, Parisian Breeze
Accessories: Chocolate chip taffeta ribbon, SU markers, Aquapainter, Scallop Edge punch
