Brewin' Up Birthday Wishes!

Happy New Year!!! I can't believe it's 2015! Last year (omg 2014 is last year) went so fast, it was a blur with a couple moves new jobs, new everything! I hope 2015 proves to be just as interesting, haha!!


I created a fun little card for a couple challenges today! 



I cut out a piece of watercolor paper to 4 x 5.25 and sprayed some Lemon Zest Dylusions ink spray on the watercolor paper. I tipped it upside down and spritzed it with some water to create the drips and dried it with a heat gun.  Next I grabbed some green polka dot paper from my scrap stash and added some coral scallops cut out with the Double Edge Scallop border. I cut out a small tag with the smallest tag from Tag Me and stamped the sentiment. I stamped and then cut out a couple tea cups and did some paper piecing to create the pattern in the cups. I adhered the cups on the largest plain circle from Circles 'n Scallops and then tied the tag around the card front with twine.


I created this card with this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the ColourQ challenge!


Thanks for stopping by today, hope you had a great New Year's Eve with your family and that your New Year is everything you dreamed and more!!
