Tea for Two Birthday

Tea for Two came across the pond for me recently and I couldn't resist getting the matching dies. For its first outing I made a birthday card for my friend Penny in aqua and chocolate.













I used lots of bits and bobs on this card - Pretty Pastels paper, aqua and chocolate card, aqua ribbon along with pearls and die cuts. I also stamped the woodgrain background stamp onto the mat stack die but it's hard to see in the picture.














I used a Martha Stewart punch for the card edge and made it into a tri-fold card.
As there are a few pearls on this creation I'm putting it in for the lastest challenge over at A Passion for Papertrey which this fortnight is to use pretty pearls!

Chris, your card is gorgeous! Love the colors you used and the teapot (I'm still trying to not buy that set & dies, lol). I bet your friend loved her card!
