Tea for a special Mum

 I made this little teapot card for my lovely Mother-in-law for Mother's day. I followed the brilliant tutorial from Top Tip Challenge by Deneen. As soon as I saw it I knew that's what I wanted to do for my MIL.
 The papers are from my stash, really old ones but they had a lovely vintage feel which I added to by inking the edges with distress ink. Inside for the little tag I used peel off letters, cup of tea sticker and Angel stamp.
I made a tiny little stand for the back so it would behave itself when displayed lol.
The flowers are from my stash, I punched some leaves and added lots of netting, a marianne die butterfly and some lovely lace. The lid of the teapot was embossed with the dotty folder.

I would like to enter this into

Hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day, mine was pretty quiet. I am always sad on Mother's day:(
