I colored the image with SN Markers and some pink buttons. I used pop dots for dimension on the image. Used my scalloped Dies from Spellbinders with some grey pearls.
CS is from American Crafts and the paper is from Upsy Daisy Designs. Velvet Ribbon and buttons from my stash.

Inside of the card:

We have enjoyed having you as our guest this month! Thank you for going above and beyond with your work! It has been such a pleasure sharing your talent with others and getting to know you!

This card / gift set is adorable! I LOVE the little bag that is holding the tea. So sweet! Beautiful, soft colors. Darling pearls and buttons. Sigh. I am sure she would rather sit and have a cup with you, but this will indeed make her smile and brighten her day.

Sending big hugs,
Heather D.
