Vintage Tea

Good morning. Do you have time for a cup of tea? This card fits a few challenges. At Sugar Creek Hollow, the challenge is called VINTAGE TEA. We are to create a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper-crafted project featuring vintage tea pots and cups. I am also entering other challenges  to use lace/ribbon and lavender.
 I used a Paper Cupcake digital image called "Teacup with Roses". I printed the image on a digital floral background found on my Photoshop files and adjusted the color to lavender and the size for my card dimensions. I then colored the image with Copics, added some Glitter to the lavender roses with Sakura Clearstar pen, and added Glossy Accents to the cup. Used a base card of Parchment CS, punched the edge with Martha Stewart Floral Lace Punch. Attached the image layer with a Doily section on the corner, vintage lace on the lower edge (Lined with dark lavender ribbon), and a sheer bow of lovely lavender. Added a strip of lavender paper to the inside under the punched edge to highlight the punched design. Sentiment from Flourishes stamped in SU green.
Paper that I printed for card
Challenges:

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
