May Your Cup Overflow...

This card was made for the Tangled Up In Creativity challenge hosted by Heather over at Stamping Mommy. She challenged us to make our own designer paper...what fun! The day I made this card I'd had a cortisone injection in my foot and the Doctor ordered my to stay off it for 24 hours...slightly impractical for a Mum of 2 who are both on school vacation...but a great excuse to make cards all day! I had lots of fun making all the strips of designer paper for this card...some are stamped, some are airbrushed and some are both...I tried to use the patterns on the cups as inspiration! The whole background except for the little, thin scalloped strip of blue and the lace and ribbon were handmade!
