Afternoon Tea

A birthday card for my friend today who also has a special birthday this year!

This is similar to one I made a few weeks ago and is a pop-up card that folds flat which is brilliant.

Colours used are Stampin' Up:
Pistatchio Pudding
Crisp Cantaloupe
Strawberry Slush
Old Olive (card base) and a hint of black

Flowers are from the Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamp sets (with matching punches), leaves from the now retired Secret Garden framelits and finished with sizzix cut numbers (rude not to), a sentiment and some gems!)

We have been out to a local hotel today for afternoon tea which was absolutely lovely and excellent value.

11 of us went out and we had 3 of these tiered treats between us - with plenty of tea of course, a lovely way to spend the afternoon.
