My Mother's Teapot, Tea Cup, and Card

Part 1 of my present to my Mom
My Mother will just love this teapot and cup using the Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection papers........... so gorgeous. This is the second teapot and tea cup I made. The first one was posted on 4/26/2013,  The Tea pot along with the cup are from, their Tea for You and Me SVG Collection. The Tea pot's lid comes off and inside is a surprise. Finished tea pot is 8-1/2" x 7" .............. Finished cup size is 2-3/4" x 3-3/4. Note this tea cup does not have the handle since it is a traditional Chinese tea cup style. Paper used is the Graphic 45 Bird Song: Jasmine Dream and Tranquility
The card: Card base is SU Rose Red with Modern Punch in Black card stock.  Butterflies are dies from Cherry Lynn Designs: Exotic Butterfly Small #2-DL113 and Exotic Butterfly Small DL-112. Metal Fan on the card is from Blue Moon Beads (can be found at any craft store) and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts from the UK. The adhesive red resin flowers with rhinestone centers are from Queen and Company. Leaves are using a Carl Punch, punch it and crumple it.
See the gorgeous flowers and butterfly: The Asian image is from the Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection: Shanghai Girls
