Now This is Some Green Tea I Could Enjoy!

I am forever trying to make myself drink tea.  I have lost track of how many different kinds I have tried - black, green, herbal, peppermint...none of which suits me.  I'm too much of a coffee girl.  But - after I made this card, I decided the sponged edges of the vanilla card stock reminded me of green tea!
 I stamped the flower on a piece of vanilla cardstock and colored the flowers purple.  Then I layered it with Baha Breeze.  To achieve a continual torn affect on the side, I attached the ribbon to the left side of the celery cardstock; the attached the cardstock to the left side of the card.  I distressed the edge by tearing the edge of the card on the right side.  When I got to the strip of celery paper, I tore both at once.  Then, I was able to attach the ribbon to the torn side of the strip of celery and glue it all down. 

Like the card holder???  I made this cute little thing with a large binder clip at a workshop by this demonstrator.  Stay tuned for my design later this week.
