Crazy 4 Challenges- C4C168

This week our C4C hostess with the mostess Betty has challenged us to make anything BUT a square or A2 sized card. Gulp. 
I was truly perplexed until I remembered that I have this amazing teacup Sizzix card pattern that had yet to be used- phew!!

This was sooooo fun to make. I just cut out the pieces and folded along the scored lines and glued where the instructions told me. I love when it is so easy even I can do it ;P hee hee.

I have to admit I wanted it to look more 'authentique' so I took a gold pen and added gold foil to the teacup and plate- just like the teacups my Grandma had. I added another die cut, flowers, jewels and it was almost done. I then remembered that in my teacup stamp collection I had a set from Stampin Up with the perfect sentiment and used that plus a cup stamp on the teabag label. 

I have to admit I love it!!
Considering it is hubby's birthday today and I still need to make him a card do you think this one is to girly for him? Maybe a bit hee hee!!!

You have to hop on over to the C4C challenge blog and see the other amazing projects that ladies did to help inspire you out of the 'normal' card size. Thanks Betty for such a fun challenge!

Cheers, Andrea
