Mad Hatter Tea Party! HOTP Prize

Now what would the Mad Hatter say about a tea party?  That's what I was thinking as I created the card for the current challenge over at Off the Wall Craftiness.  The prize the week is a bundle of supplies from Hot Off the Press.  I've included a picture for you to entice.  There are currently only 4 entries (including mine) so you have a very good chance of winning.  All you have to do is make a card using the inspirational colours from the photo.  It doesn't have to be fancy.  

Mine's was CAS inspired.  I didn't want to get into layers and pattern paper.  I wanted the colours to speak for themselves.  As I went to stamp my tea cups I decided to do something topsy turvy with the cups Kind of like the Mad Hatter himself.  Then it occurred to me exactly what the Mad Hatter would say as he finished sipping his cup of tea. "(Slurp) Ahh, Delightful and delicious to the very last drop!"  Then I added the drops spilling out of the cups and my hand printing to the inside of the card.   I prefer using stamps since I have such unsteady hands....but I had nothing else to use.  The line is slightly slanted but it will do for now.  The little clip in the top right isn't actually part of the card.  I just needed something nice to keep the card together so I didn't get such a shadow through the Label cutout.

Can't wait to see what you create with that inspiring photo.  Happy Crafting.
