Crafter's Tea Party - Tea Cups - Part 2

Maybe the "base"-design of this card seems familiar, and you might have a point. When I was doing the telephone card, I got the idea to use a stamp punch (Martha Stewart) to punch out tea brand logos from teabag sachets and tags and use it at one of the tea swaps coming up - glad that I pursued this idea, so the base was finished before my accident.

I used a digi stamp from Whimsy and Stars Studio, MRO Coffee Cup, since thought it perfect for the swap's theme: tea cups. Actually my all time favourite tea cup, has been a jumbo size cup in the same color as the girl on the stamp.

Made a tea bag pouch, that holds 4 instead of the required 2 teabags - Cathie had to wait a long time for me to send this, so wanted to add that little extra. Again the digistamp was used, albeit merely part of it.
