Inspiration - Paper Sweeties Challenge for March "Anything Goes" Paper Sweeties is one of the super/FLASH sponsor's, for the 2017 Spring Coffee Lover's BlogHop. For my card today I'm using a combination of stamps from CTMH and Paper Sweeties...stop on by, leave a note, browse the blog for other challenges and view the products.

There was a freebie digital on Stamplorations Blog which I was going to color ... however instead decided to use it as an inspiration for my card.  Here is the digital.

Kept my inks and stamps busy and did a lot of masking to create the floral background. Stamped several of the teacups and teapot from Paper Sweeties, colored, fussy-cut and temporarily placed randomly on the background until satisfied with the layout.  I made slits in my floral sheet, slipped in the teacups and teapot and adhered them with 3D thin foam tape. Still needed sought out a stamp with a small butterfly and dragonfly. Stamped with color inks, fussy-cut and placed these randomly on the background with 3D foam tape.  Sentiment was added and card was complete.  

A couple phot0s of close-ups of the detail of the stamping and adhering to card base.
