Paper Sweeties April Inspiration Challenge #18 - 'Sweet Treats'

The first of the month is here and it's time for a new Inspiration Challenge at Paper Sweeties! The inspiration this month is just full of Spring goodness!
Here is my interpretation of the inspiration:
I did a sleek but shabby chic style using some new papers from the Styleboard 6x6 paper pad from Crate Paper. I used the I'm Having A Tea Party stamp set for my tea setting. The sentiment is from the Sending Sweet Thoughts stamp set. I've also incorporated a paper straw in robin's egg as part of my border down the side of the card. I used sharp scissors to cut it in half so it wouldn't  be too bulky.  A complete supply list is below with links to the Paper Sweeties shop.

I hope you'll visit the rest of the Paper Sweeties design team and see what they've made for you this month!
