Week 364: TEA

It's a good time for a quiet cup of tea, no?!  Let's have tea together in the gallery.  I think we could all use some about now.

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner $25 off their next online order!

Be sure and check out their current 20% Springtime Sale and their $35 gift code giveaway over on the Current Promotions page for lots of savings!

Let's see what the design team and our guest designer created for inspiration to get us started!
