Relax with a cuppa!


My card today is all about relaxing.  I've combined two challenges -

Casology


and 



I thought both these challenges work well together because the purples for Dynamic Duos are also relaxing. 

My base card is Sahara Sand.  On top of that I've added a large mat of Wisteria Wonder which I scored a diagonal pattern with my Scoring Tool.  The next mat is Concord Crush and the last mat it Whisper White.  I stamped the large tea cup from Tea Shoppe in Concord Crush then cut out and attached with Dimensionals.  Thanks is from one of the sentiments and is stamped in Wisteria Wonder then punched out with the Modern Label punch and tucked behind the cup.  I then tied a bow round the handle using two pieces of  Linen Thread

Having a cuppa is a lovely way to relax, along with crafting, glass of wine, dancing, singing at the top of your voice.  Oooops letting away too many secrets Lol!
