This was the card that I created when I first found out I was joining the Altenew team. I loved creating this card.

Time for tea? My answer to that is always yes LOL so the Vintage Teacups set was guaranteed to be a favorite of mine. I do love using random cups and containers to holding things too and what better than a Beautiful Day bloom.
