Coffee Lovers Hop - Tea Party + GIVEAWAY

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Hop.  I won't be able to participate a whole bunch this week, but I do have one card and a giveaway.  :)

For my card today, I went super formal with a lovely stamp based on the image from a vintage Tea Party Ticket for Good Friday in 1857.  So cool!  I thought it was quite appropriate for the Hop, since it is Easter time and you can make your project Coffee, Tea, or Cocoa themed.  This image even has cats on it.....although they got partially covered with the die cuts I used.  

I am sooooo proud of the pretty bow I was able to make from some totally delicious ribbon from Pat Garvin.  (THANKS, Pat!!)

Supplies used for this card include:
Crafty Individuals - Tea Party Ticket stamp
Versafine Ink in Smokey Gray
Spellbinders - Lace Doily Accents die set
Spellbinders - Heartfelt Creations - Raindrops on Roses die set
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Oval STAX die set
DCWV scraps from my stash
Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet
Prima Flowers
Adhesive Pearls

Okay.....on to the GIVEAWAY!!!!  I bought an extra one of these pretty Crafty Individuals - Tea Party Ticket stamps, which I am offering to one lucky randomly-drawn commenter.  This is open world-wide!  Yay!!  This comes as an unmounted red rubber stamp.  You can read more details about it on the link above.
Cats and a tea party!  What's not to love????
