Invited for Tea-CABD

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and had a chance to enjoy the hop over at the Card A Day Blog. If you have come from Card A Day Blog welcome to my blog.
The theme this week is invitation and I wanted to try something of a different type of invitation:
How about an invite for tea amongst the girls. This is a lovely way to ask a friend over for tea and talk time.
This card came about mainly from scraps. Since I worked on a journal challenge all day Saturday, I didn't have a chance to prepare a card. But in an hour and half Monday night this is the card I did.

While I was learning how to do the wet emboss technique I did a lot of different cuttlebug folders dry embossing and then wet embossed and added heat embossing powder. Well I kept all the extras in a box, which is so handy when you need to do up something quick.

Recipe for the card:

PAPERS: Card base is from the DCWV Rustic Stack, the doily border is from Coredinations gemstones paper, assortment of colored papers from my scrap stash.
INKS: Stampin up basic black and the sentiment was done with studio g chalks, wet embossing was probably VersaMark
DIECUTS:  Nestabilities  Labels Nine

STAMPS:  tea cup is SU and the sentiment is CTMH

ADHESIVE:  ATG Tape gun, Scotch 3M glue, pop dots 

PUNCHES: Lace Ribbon, 2 3/8" Extra-Large scallop circle and scallop oval both from SU
MISC:    Ribbon from stash, Lavender stickles, Crystal Stickers elements, butterfly stick pin (I received as a gift in a swap)

TECHNIQUES:  Dry Embossing, wet embossing

Don't forget the challenge going on over at Card A Day Blog there is a fantastic prize giveaway for this month and 3 different themes to work with. Thanks for joining me today and remember scraps can be your friend in a time of need, have a great day!
