Tea Time DD#97

Pulled out lots of things for this.  Do you ever wake up half dreaming/half planning a card?  I guess I went to bed thinking about these colors after looking at my stamping blogs before bed.  Usually, I must be up and rushing about getting ready for work, and those dreamy ideas vanish.  Today I took advantage of my last sweet day of spring break, and got to crafting while the coffee brewed :-)

First, I stamped the background strip in second generation Whisper ink.  Then I water brushed in some color on the flowers. I had dreamed of floral teacups....Then I cut them out with the die, and mounted them on panels of Lagoon and Cotton Candy card stock (my closest matches to Dynamic Duos). I ran a panel of vellum through the Cuttlebug, punched a label in white and Lagoon, stamped the sentiment, tied the bow,  and added a few tiny blooms with pearls in the center. 

Thank you Dynamic Duos for a sweet dream and a fun crafting morning!
