Cup Of Love & Kindness

Good Monday Morning!
Donna Phelan back again....happy day after Christmas!
Hope you all were able to celebrate with loved ones!
Now we can put away the festive reds and greens....YAY!

This card uses Spellbinders Captivating Squares as a base for my focal image, which was stamped and fussy cut out.  My teacup is topped with a pretty heart die snipped from the Homespun Heart, by Memory Box.  The ampersand is by Sizzix, Holiday Words Script
I had this Kindness die hanging around but I love the idea of using the Curly Words Sympathy die by Die-Versions for a 'Tea And Sympathy' card.  There are quite a few of Curly Word Dies available.  

I topped my Teacup with the beautiful Small Gardenia by Cheery Lynn.  I also added different leaves using the Foliage 1 die by Paper Smooches.  Swiss Dots Embossing Folder for texture.  I colored some Seam Binding Ribbon with my Copic Markers and then heat set it.  Button and Jute Twine and Adhesive Pearls for accents.
