An Exercise in Creation

The other day I was fooling around with this set. It is such a cool set but I have trouble thinking of ways to use it. It really should belong to my cousin Mary who loves all things tea.
However I just started cutting out the shapes using the PaperTrey dies to match the Tea for Two. Whoever thought of the dies to match the PaperTrey sets is brilliant. They are so easy to use.
Anyway I was going through my scraps and papers and came up with this combo. I used PaperTrey for the base and the yellow is a scrap from my leftovers drawer. The DP is a scrap from DCWV Nana's Kitchen, lots of sparkle on this piece. I had some of the label dies cut out in white and the sentiment fit nicely in there. I used some narrow pink ribbon from my stash and I wound it around several times and tied a knot. I was having trouble thinking of how I was going to attach the label until I thought of using the ribbon to hold it on (of course there are glue dots on the back). So it was done and I like how it turned out. What do you think. Thanks for stopping by.
