Happy Birthday Tea Cup

** 9/28/15 Top 3 at Melonheadz Friends! **

Hi everyone! It's time for another fun challenge over at 3 Girl JAM! I'm super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for our October Anything Goes with Ribbon challenge! Come play with us! You could be the proud winner of a $15 gift certificate to the 3 Girl JAM store!

I created an adorable Happy Birthday Tea Cup using Blueberry crinkle ribbon from the Summer Harvest Bundle for my big bow. What yummy colors these are! This was a super fun project and the first tea cup I've ever made. My inspiration for the tea cup came from Linda Parker. I added my signature bow and a surprise inside which you'll see down below. ;)

I stamped several clusters of pretty blue flowers all around the outside of the tea cup, dabbed some clear Wink of Stella on them and then added a tiny yellow gemstone to the center of  most of them. These next few shots are different angles going around the tea cup.

Here's a close-up of that yummy bow. You know how I love my bows! And I really do love this Blueberry ribbon! :)

And here's another added touch...

The birthday sentiments and pretty little blue and yellow heart glitter in a shaker pouch! I had to play with the fuse tool! :D
