Asian Tea Party

What better way to celebrate a friend's birthday who treasures tea like a good wine. I made a Asian tea pot with cup and saucer using the Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection papers which are so gorgeous. The Tea pot along with the cup and saucer (and spoon) are from SVGcuts.com, their  Tea for You and Me SVG CollectionThe Tea pot's lid comes off and inside is a surprise.  Finished tea pot is 8-1/2" x 7" .............. Finished cup size is 5" x 3" x 3-3/4" ........finished saucer is about 6". The spoon is 5-3/4" x 1-3/8".
 Here's the cup and saucer with spoon:
 Overhead view of cup inside:
 The teapot:
View of the spout:
 Lid removed (not filled with treats yet):
 And, of course the card.
In the Vellum envelope is a Shanghai Lady which is part of the Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection.  I chose this Lady because her dress sort of matches the print used. In the top right corner is a metal fan from Hanko. The "Happy Birthday" is from the Silhouette On Line Store. The flowers are from my stash and leaves are a Carl punch.
 Card inside: message is a stamp from Hero Arts Thoughtful Messages stamp set.
Now aren't you just loving these projects?  I really liked how they all came out. Happy crafting to you!!!
