This sweet little card measures 4 3/4 inches square! I have added a materials list and step by step directions below. You can find the Our Daily Bread Products by clicking on the links in the materials list.

Now go check out what the other breadsticks have made for your enjoyment today!

1. Color the main image and shade with alcohol markers. (I usually do my coloring the day before I assemble my card.)
2. Color the teacup handle with the silver paint pen.
3. Apply Glossy Accents to the teacup and saucer portions only. Not on the flowers except for the band on the cup itself.  Allow to dry completely.
4. Using the Memento ink, stamp the teacup image on smooth white card stock. Stamp the happy birthday and enjoy your day! on smooth Aloe card stock.
5.  Cut the card base out of Bristol paper. The measurements are 4 1/4  x 8 1/2 inches and I scored at        2 1/4 and again at 4 1/4 inches.
6. Cut a piece of white card stock 4 1/4 x 6 1/2 and emboss it. Cut a 4 1/4 square from this.
7. Line the back edges with extra sticky 1/4 inch double sided tape and add 1/4 inche gathered lace. Pleat each corner of the lace on a 45 degree angle to make the corners.
8. Cut another piece of white card 4 1/4 square and attach to the back so that it looks finished.
9. Line the front edge of this piece with a strip of  half back pearls that measure about 4 mm around.
10. Die cut a doily with Pink Pirouetts paper.
11. Die cut the outside doily shape  and the in Aloe. Die cut the sentiments using the Mini Tags Dies and the Recipe and Tags Dies.
12. Die cut the flower shapes and leaves in white card stock.
13. Sponge Aqua ink on the base flower, Outside doily shape, mini tag and recipe tag. I use the small round sponging tool by Tim Holtz.
14. Cut out the teacup image.
15. Glue the two doily pieces together and mount the main image on this with dimensional foam.
16. Apply dimensional foam to the back of the doily and center this on the embossed square.
17. Apply this square to the card front. (For an Easel card, you add glue to your card base on the first section from 0 to the first score line at 2 1/4 inches.)
18. Cut the remaining embossed card stock to 4 x 2 3/8 inches and apply to the bottom of the inside           (of the card).
19. Assemble the flower and leaf pieces with dots of glue. Add a thick dot of glitter glue to the center       of the flower.  Set aside to dry.
20. Make a small bow out of two strands of silver cording and glue to the top of the small sentiment         tag.
21. Add tag with bow to the front right lower corner of the card.
22. Add the flower to the larger tag.
23. Add dimensional foam to the back of this tag and center it to the embossed card on the inside.
24. Fluff the paper flower for added dimension and set the card up.
25. Enjoy!

Love the doily and wow, you must have stock in pearls girlfriend! I love the way you use lots of pearls for embellishing! They are so pretty! Very pretty embossing as well! Lovely!

Oh, Paula! This is gorgeous, and I love how you've added the silver cup handle (I have some cups with gold/silver on them) along with the glaze! Must be beautiful IRL! And what a gorgeous and feminine card with the doily, lace, and your fussy-cut teacup image! Beautifully colored, and I love that it's an easel card...something to be displayed in a special place...like teacups! Hugs, sweet friend!
