My Sheri Crafts Challenge 79: Warm Wishes!

Our current theme for My Sheri Crafts is Warm Wishes. It's always nice to send warm wishes, but especially when old man winter is keeping many of us in the deep freeze! I always reach for a soothing warm cup of tea when I'm chilled!
My card started with a Kraft base (Papertrey Ink CS) and the cup was cut with Spellbinders' Nested Tea Cups (K&Company 'Julianne' DP) and a handle from handmade gold paper (stash). It sits atop a small doily sprayed with Tim Holtz Heirloom Gold shimmer mist -- LOVE that stuff!
A small tea label (Papertrey Ink) dangles from the cup's rim. My tiny flower print BG paper is from Prima's Madeline Collection and my sentiment stamp is from a fun little set by Our Craft Lounge.  Finishing it off are decorative metal corners (stash), more luscious aqua seam binding (Martha Stewart) and as usual, a bit of distressing with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Hope you are keeping warm wherever you are in this big world and that you'll take a few minutes to enjoy your favorite warm beverage while you check out all our DT submissions @ My Sheri Crafts. We'd love it if you'd share your own project using our "Warm Wishes" theme too -- hope to see you there!

WOW! I love this teacup/ The scalloed rim of the cup is so pretty. All of the destressing is wonderful. Great use of the doily and the ribbon is so pretty. I am amazed tht you had the perfect stamp for the sentiment. How Perfect and Beautiful this is!
