Try It Out Tuesday Challenge #4 - Valentine Tea

For today's Try It Out Tuesday Challenge over at the Follow Your Heart Blog was to create a Valentine card using stamps from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design that weren't for Valentine's day. So I decided to use this Karen Lockhart Teapot stamp and to make it into a Valentine, and using the saying inside the card helped to tie the image and theme together.

The saying on the inside says:
On February 14th at half past three,
brew yourself a cup of tea.
I'll think of you,
You think of me
What good friends we'll always be!
After stamping this KL image and coloring it with my Copics I used a Pink Spica glitter pen on the cupcakes and a Clear Spica on the steam coming out of the teapot. The designer paper is Bittersweet Basic Grey paper that I received from Tammi and I love it! I also added some Baubles, pink taffeta ribbon and the SU Happy Valentines saying along with a pocket inside the card to hold the tea bag to finish off the card.
If you haven't stopped over at the Paper Craft Planet site and visited Susana's Custom Art & Card Design group your missing out on all the fun! Right now we have some awesome Blog Candy up for grabs, so don't miss out on a chance to win!
PS I've been not feeling well over the past few days so that's the reason for not posting.
