You Are Tea-riffic

Hello Blogger Friends! thanks for stopping by to visit with me in Charmed Life Land. I so appreciate all the visits I get and all the comments that you leave. I read them all.  
Didn't do much of anything today. Went to the gym and had an appointment with our trainer. Our team just loves working with him. He has taken us a long way in the 2 years we have been working with him. There are 5 of us on our team. We meet 3x a week for our workout. And, about every 2 weeks we meet with Josh.
I did make a card today as well. I will post that one in the next day or 2. This card I am showing today I made for the color challenge #568 on Splitcoaststampers. Vicki was our hostess and she chose soft sky, so saffron and basic gray as her color trio.
My card is using elements from the Stampin'-Up July 2015 Paper Pumpkin kit. This Pinterest card was my inspiration.
I changed the kit card by using basic gray as my base color. I also added some soft sky designer paper on the card base.

On the image panel I used confetti celebration designer paper  and cut a flag with an MFT die. The striped layer is part of the kit as is the gray background designer paper .

On my teacup I stamped a flourish in soft sky ink. It's from an older set from My time Made Easy. The sentiment is from the Stampin'-Up set "a nice cuppa". Finished my card by adding some cotton Perle twine and a few soft sky hearts.
Well, it's getting late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time........God bless!
