Color Combo challenge

This is the first Paper Crafting World challenge for the Fall, 2012 season! It’s a color combo challenge, using these scrumptious colors:

It’s like squeezing out the last drop of summer!  I wanted to give a gift of tea to a co-worker who is literally doing the job of two people.  I thought she could use a tea break, and I chose chamomile tea.  Here is my project:

The paper is KI Memories designer paper, the Funky Paper Pad II.  It has all the colors I needed.  I used the Tea for Two digital stamp for my image, sized at 2.5 inches.  There are four teabags inside:

This was very easy to make.  You can make two from an 8.5 x 11 piece of card stock.

Cut the card stock 3.5 x 11 inches.  Score at 1 7/8, 5 1/8, 5 7/8, and 9 1/8 inches.  Cut two pieces of patterned paper 3 1/4 by 1 5/8 inches and two pieces 2 3/4 x 3 inches.  Fold all the score lines and adhere the patterned paper.  I used Terrifically Tacky tape to close the sides, and eyelet and ribbon to tie it closed.

Let’s see what you can do with these vibrant colors!  Link your project over at Paper Crafting World!
