FTTC#215 Around the House

This week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge was to use something found around the house.  I cleaned out my pantry & found this box of tea bags & they have expired.  Rather than toss it out, I decided to use one of the bags to tea stain my c/s for this challenge.  A side benefit was my cardstock smelled really nice for a little while.  You can still smell faint traces of vanilla & caramel if you sniff really hard.

Stamps: Sweet Nature, sentiment Strawberries Flourishes
C/S: Cherry Red, Black, white
DP: Black & Ivory Prints
Seeing Spots ef, copics, oval punches, black pearls

A card a day keeps the mojo flowin'.... until next time!
