Tea With Friends at HOC

      This month we have a fifth week at House Of Cards, which means a photo inspiration and any card style for one week only.
     I liked the colours in the photo and the idea of having afternoon tea with friends, so now I've finished my card I shall raise my cup to my DT friends at HOC......cheers girls!  Please pop over to their blogs to see what they've been inspired to make while you have a cuppa of your own.
     This started as a square white card blank, it was stamped in Distress Ink Faded Jeans with a hydrangea stamp from Papermania. There is a small layer of blue pearl paper between the stamped card and the piece of scrapbook paper that I found in my stash, I thought the colour was right and the wording fitted with what I wanted to say.
     The cups are a digital freebie from Vintage Digital Stamps printed out on photo paper. The front one is mounted on foam pads to stand out.
     The flowers are from stash, they came white so I've inked the edges with Faded Jeans and popped a small blue pearl in the centre of each one.
     You could send something like this to a friend that lives some distance from you and include an individually wrapped tea bag so they can make a cuppa and think of you.

      I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Stampin' For The Weekend - Spring Colours

Cute Card Thursday - Floral Delights
