Play Date Cafe Challenge #33

At the Play Date Cafe Challenge, the colors are raspberry, aqua, kraft and white.  Here is my take on them:


I recently won a set of clear stamps from Lauren at My Time Made Easy in a random draw.  They are Catherine Doucette's first designs, and I was lucky enough to win the set!  Take a look at it here; there are lots of fun images, all built around a tea theme.  LOVE the tea cup, so many ways to stamp it!
When I saw the challenge colors, my mind jumped to the new Lucy Bird paper I just got, and I thought it would be great to piece the cup. 

Supplies: My Time Made Easy clear set A Spot of Tea, Hero Arts CG118 Stripes Pattern, kraft, white, aqua cardstock, broken china distress ink, VersaFine Onyx Black ink, imaginisce Lucy Bird and BoBunny Blush Dot papers
