Time for Tea!

I finally felt up to a bit of crafting this afternoon and decided to play with this wee cutie.  It's a digi from Bugaboo, and the perfect image for me as my capacity for tea drinking is legendary!  I decided to paper piece the tea cup and whilst sifting through my A4 papers, which fit in my printer, I happened upon this yummy stack of Papermania Forever Friends Black and Gold papers.  I had originally thought I'd make something more colourful but I couldn't resist the urge to use this pack.  Some of the papers are foiled in gold, which doesn't show up very well in the photos, but looks luscious in reality.  The ribbon, bow and gems are from the same range and the sentiment is from a Forever Friends Best of British stamp set.
All I needed to finish off were some flowers made with Nellie Snellen punches and some gold mirri Card Candi.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Sketch 'n' Stash - #97 - sketch.  New stash - digi, old stash - papers
Sweet 'n' Sassy - #73 - square cards
Do You Stack Up?  - #91 - scallops
The House That Stamps Built - paper piecing
Use it Tuesday - #40 - use your scraps.  My older stash is the papers, most of them part used sheets, and tiny scraps were used to make the flowers and leaves
