This week's Mojo Monday has a fun sketch challenge to try.
I thought a trio of dancing teacups would be the perfect centerpiece for this card.
Each teacup was stamped separately (I used painter's tape to mask off the other cups) so that I got a better image than I would have using markers. This also allows for a wider margin to center the 1-3/8" circle punch just so.
The Marina Mist strip has a torn edge and adds just a little color. The 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon is one of my favorite ribbons. It is easy to get a nice knot in this width and texture.

On a personal note, I lost my beautiful 10 year old Bernese Mountain Dog yesterday. She was ravaged by an aggressive cancerous tumor that came on so quickly, I can hardly believe that just 3 months ago she acted perfectly normal. She was so good with the children and so very sweet and gentle. A wonderful dog and companion. Goodbye my loyal friend.
My Bernese used to lay nearby as I sat at my desk making cards. She liked to lay right where I would need to walk. I was constantly stepping over her (a big step it was!) to get to my paper cutter. I think she did it on purpose so that I wouldn't forget she was near.
Creating is good for the soul. Create something of beauty. Create Something Fun.
