More March Mojo Monday

When I returned home this afternoon from a yummy brunch to celebrate my granddaughter's birthday, there was a package for me waiting on the table.  The two stamp sets I had ordered from Joy Clair Stamps had arrived.  After putting away a few groceries, I got right to work making this card for a Tea-rrific Mother.  
I've used flowered paper for spring, intending this card for Mother's Day.  Although, this card would be suitable for any tea-rrific mother, for any occasion.
The teapot image was stamped and then embossed in white before being fussy cut.  Circles were cut on the cricut.  The scalloped circle was punched.  The center strip was covered with off white sheer ribbon and then embossed.  After embossing the large half circle, I went over it with a dauber and blue ink to make the hearts more visible.  Finally, I added a glitter dot on the teapot lid and a couple more just for so. 

Once again, I followed the sketch from this month's Mojo Monday Sketch Contest.  You can find my first Mojo Monday entry, an Easter card, here
