Time for Tea!

Good morning everyone!
Design team work keeps me busy, but every once in a while I create something else that I want to share.

My good friend decided she wanted a themed birthday party. She's that one friend (hopefully) everyone has that goes out of her way to make sure other people's days are special, so everyone was excited to play along for her.  We all dressed like characters from Downton Abbey, and we had a magical tea party in her backyard. She hung teacups from the trees, set up all sorts of Alice in Wonderland type props, played 1920's music .... it was perfect!

When I saw the Saturated Canary image "Teacups"  I knew it was meant for her! Here's what I created.

Copics used:
Skin - E000, 00, 21, 11, 04, R20
Hair - E42, 44, 47, 49
Outfit - R35, 46, 59 BG000, 01, 05, 07 E93, 95, 97

For the inside of the card I used a cutting file from the Silhouete online shop to do some pop-up teacups.
