Hi everyone - I hope you are enjoying Day 2 of this fabulous hop.  Every ones creations are wonderful.  This is a little bit of mine for you :-)

The file I decided to use from My Scrap Chick was this Teacup Easel Card.  It even has a little pocket for either a gift card, a tea bag or like I have done, a little tag. 

Now I have a little confession to make, I had to cut mine out by hand as my Silhouette Cameo needs a new power cable.  But it goes to show that with these fabulous files from Val - anything is possible :-)

My papers are from a lovely little 6" by 6" First Edition Paper pad, called Bird Song.  The papers are so pretty and some of them have gloss and glitter effects on them, just like this one.  Hope you can see the shine in this next photo.

I stamped the inner circle with the a little stamp, that I found amongst a set of freebie stamps from a magazine.  It was so perfect to go with this card and just had to use it.  My little flowers are made from 3 little Recollections petals - you know the ones you get in a bottle, and then I added some leaves that I found already cut out amongst my stash.

For the tag, I used my Cuttlebug and a Spellbinders Labels 8 die. The little Happy Birthday is from the same set as the teapot stamp.  I inked all the edges of all the layers, including the tag.

I hope you are enjoying the hop.  

Before you go, I have a little blog candy for one lovely follower of my blog.  Just leave a comment below.
