New Challenge Besties UK - Anything Goes + Time for Tea

Good Morning and welcome back to the latest challenge at Besties UK ... today we have a new challenge the theme is

Time for Tea

You can enter the challenge here 'My Besties UK' we have some fab digis as prizes and a special priced digi available to purchase, the rules are up to 3 entries with a Bestie Image and one without so you can enter up to 4 times ....

This is my design team card for the challenge, I had to make a card for a friend who is having a baby soon and I fell in love with this image Tea Time Tippi she is just so cute.  I have recently been to America and bought these beautiful papers while I was there....  This is a simple card and requires few tools and only 3 pieces of paper.


1/2 Sheet coredinations cardstock
1/2 sheet pretty paper
1 sheet A4 cream card
Lace & ribbon 

Spellbinders Ovals plain and scalloped
Cherish border - memory box

This card was kept very simple to showcase the image rather than the embellishments, card size 14.5cm square, layered .5cm smaller for card and paper.
I used the Oval Spellbinders to cut around the image
Coloured with copics 
Layered the die cut ribbon and lace then added the image

Copics Used:-
Skin tones - e000, e00, e11, e21, e04, r20
Hair - e23, e25, e27, e29
Eyes - e08, e17
Clothing/teacups -rv66, rv34, rv32, e37, e50, e51, e53, yg63, yg99
