Summer Tea Song

Hello, everyone!  Today is Day 3 of the Summer Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop. Have you checked it out? Anyone can join! Just link up a newly created summer-themed coffee, tea, or cocoa project. The linky is open until 11:59 p.m. Pacific on Friday, June 12. Hope to see you there!


I've made another tea-themed card. I found this lovely vellum quote in my stash (Papermania) and I thought it would be perfect for the hop! 


I attached the vellum with washi tape and affixed a die-cut tea cup (Top Dog Dies Teatime Decorative Die Set). The little puffs of steam are from Your Next Stamp Gingerbread House Die Set.  For the butterflies, I didn't have the colour I wanted in cardstock so I sponged Evergreen Bough Distress Ink on a white scrap before I die-cut them (Joy!crafts). Lastly I added a number of sequins in black and holographic white.

The card design and colours were inspired by the challenge and blog hop over at House of Cards:


I would also like to support these fun challenges:  Beccy's Place June AG UE; Buckwell's Crafty Things with Wings 1/3; Butterfly Challenge Butterflies and Sequins 1/3; Crafty Gals Corner Summer Fun 1/2; Cute Card Thursday Summer Colours UE; Die-Cut Diva's June Bug (butterflies and dragonfly) UE; DL.ART June Linky AG 1/day; Fresh Brewed Blog Fun in the Sun 1/5; Get Creative Must Include Butterflies 1/3; Hiding in My Craftroom Summer Colours 1/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Loves Rubberstamps AG UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; One Sweet Challenge Die Cuts and/or Punches UE; Papertake Weekly AG 4/5; Pixie's Snippet Playground Die-cuts from snippets 1/3; Scribble and Scrap AG 1/3; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; Stamp and Create Summer Fun 1/wk 1/4; The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Music Inspired 1/2; Wags n Whiskers Seeing Spots 1/2 (RANDOM WINNER)Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 4/5

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

So beautiful design, with the musical elements and the butterflies! The vellum quote matches perfectly with all! You used so well your distress ink to colour the pretty butterflies!!
In my town today the weather is just hot, hot, hot... so I like take a cup of coffee only with a lot of ice...
Can this fact inspire you? :D
Many hugs!!
