Second day in a row!

Hope this is a sign for the new year for me...posting more often, we'll see you know what they say about New Year's Resolutions (they hardly ever work, at least for me).

This card is for the challenge over at Freshly Made were they like Clean and Simple designs. Not sure the card I made fits this criteria as I took the liberty of rearranging the 3 focal points since it just looked better on my card.

Anyhow here it is, what do you think? I's a little out of my comfort zone using multiple paper patterns, but I'm trying...

I made it for a golf friend who has a birthday this month and she LOVES tea cups, teapots, anything to do with tea, so I thought this sketch from Freshly Made worked well for my idea. My daughter over at Canopy Crafts will laugh because she says I place everything on an angle, however she should note the bottom cup is straight!

Aren't there a lot of birthdays in January or is it just my thinking.
