WaltzingMouse Stamps Blog Party - Sweet Things - January 2012

I have been having so much fun playing the Afternoon Tea stamp set from WaltzingMouse, so for this month's challenge we have to use a stamp set to make a card with the theme of Sweet Things. Once I completed the card I really felt like it was missing something, a tea charm.  I thought I had a bunch of these but could not find one single charm, so on eBay I went and found these adorable little silver tea bags, just too darn cute.  Going to tea and having sweet scones along with a nice hot cup of Ceylon tea is at the top of my list of "sweet" things to do.  So this is my take on the challenge this month, thanks for taking a peek
