Time for Tea (or coffee)!

Hello lovelies
Well it is time for another challenge over at Totally Tilda and Friends.
This time the challenge is:
TEA OR COFFEE
We want to see your creations feature either Tea or Coffee somewhere.  It doesn't have to be on the image, it can be a charm, on a ribbon, on your backing paper but it must relate somehow to Tea or Coffee.
Our lovely sponsor this time is:
gif maker

And the Prize is;
So here is the card I made for this challenge:
Now this card was cased from the Clarity Website Gallery and the lovely Elaine Milner's card.
Isn't Elaine's card gorgeous? If anyone knows how I can link to Elaine could you let me know please. Thanks.
So I used the Victorian Tea Set Stamps and stamped them in Seedless Preserve Distress Ink for my card and added ribbon and card to match.
I masked off a band of card and stamped most of the images in second generation ink and the main teapot image in first generation ink to make it stand out.
I then brushed the same shade of distress ink around the edges of the band.
Then I drew a line down each side with my Flexmarker in Plum
I cut a tag shape out of white card and backed it onto some contrasting coloured card.
Then I stamped the verse and the teacup in first generation ink.
Using my Clarity Stencil brushes I brushed the same distress ink around the edge of the tag.
Added a satin ribbon in a matching shade to the tag and voila!
Thank you Elaine for the inspiration and I hope I did your card justice.
