What's your brew?!!

Hi sweet friends!
I'm a bit late for the tea party :)
 It's the time that we Dueling Darlings post our cards using
the fun theme of "What's your Brew - coffee or tea?"

It's no secret I'm a huge Starbucks fan!
In fact, I'm pretty sure I have financed the college of one barista's kid
and should probably have my own "Parking for Kelly" sign outside our local store!
I love, love, LOVE me some Starbucks ♥
But I love a good cup of tea as well,
especially being that my mum is English :)

So ... for today's brew, my card is using a MFT "You're my cup of tea" image
rather than the coffee image that was sent by Kadie
inside this absolutely scrumptious card kit! 
From the gorgeous papers to the wonderful embellishments,
there was so much to play with with.  My eyes kept drawing towards
the softer, homespun colors and the gorgeous teacup paper.

 I colored the image to match and framed it.
It felt a little busy so I added some enamel dots,
paper pieced the tea cup and left it at that.
The Dazzlers, with team Paola, have a different coffee/tea image
so our duel is officially on!   You can find them all in my sidebar
to see the fabulous cards of the Divas and the Dazzlers.

No matter what the 'brew',
it's nice to have a cuppa with a friends!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
