Floral Teacup Card

I made this cute birthday card for a friend who is really crafty so I knew I wanted to make something that would impress. Her style is elegant and simple which I think I've managed to capture. I normal keep florals quite plain, but I decided to try using clashing patterns (which I keep hearing is a big trend at the moment) and think it came out quite well. I used an Anitas glitter decoupage for the flower teacup, I love Anitas decoupage as it's die cut and it's quite easy to use without any fiddely cutting out (which I can be hit or miss with). The background was made using Papermania 12"x12" Paper & Die-cut Pack - Rose Garden, which comes with papers, borders greetings and die-cuts. I used a background paper, a border and a greeting on this card. The pack costs £5.99, which is a real bargain for all you get in it. I also chalked the edges with pink for a vintage look. Overall I'm very pleased with the result, and I hope Sue is too.
