These were great colors to use for a Spring Card and with the Coffee Blog in process chose to do a tea card.  Since there was a little flower stamp incuded in the Tea-rrific CTMH Stamp set decided to stamp the colors in the challenge on white daisy cardstock for a personalized stamped background. 

Stamped, colored and fussy-cut the teacup, flower and tea bag...layered and adhered to background with 3D Thin Foam Tape, lining up the floral on the cup with the background paper.  Stamped sentiment in lagoon ink and layered on tangerine cardstock.

Inside twist:  Lots of layered cups.
