Botanical Part Three, a Lily Tea Cup!

Ok, I keep saying the last one was my LAST one...but I have really, truly enjoyed working with these botanical stamps so much that I can't STOP! Each card has been so different, and the message so varied, that I feel like each one has a personality of it's own!  These are the ones I have a hard time parting with...LOL. But when I started making cards, I told myself that they are not for me to look at for years to come, but to bring joy and happiness to someone, even if only for a day. 

Between the sparkle green background paper and the heat embossed tea cup, this card really looks terrific IRL!  I am getting my use out of my Copics these days, and really think I am ready to take some serious classes.  It's hard to see in the photo, but even the wires are shaded slightly to appear more 3D.  This cup stamp is one of my favorite purchases this summer, so far....  Of course, the Stampin' Up botanical stamps that I picked up at a yard sale for almost nothing is WAAAY up there, too!

Paper:  DCWV, "Songbird" and "All About Girls"
Stamps:  Stampin' Up, "Lilies"; October Afternoon, "Vintage Labels"; and Verve, "Kindred Spirits"; Layers of Color, "Chicken Wire Tea Cup"
Copics Markers
Zva pearls

So, once again, this card is for the Moxie Fab World "Fanatical about Botanicals" challenge.
