FMS #48

Hello!  I am back with another post for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I absolutely love Tui's sketches and this one is no exception.  So fun and so inspiring!  Take a look:

So many creative people have posted great projects for this FMS #48 and it is so fabulous to be able to play along :)

Here is my card; hope you enjoy...

The tea bag is actually folded up like a real tea bag and it is filled with blue and gold glitter.  I love how it turned out and it was so fun to make.  I didn't adhere the tea bag to the card so it actually comes out of the cup.
