I'm a Little Tea... Cup! - JUGs 34

The current JUGs challenge is a template challenge which I generally don't participate in because I find templates to be a little well, challenging!  I have messed around with a few, most notably templates created by the uber creative template queen, Lauren Meader.   However, when I saw the tea cup template created by Claire Brennan, owner of WaltzingMouse Stamps, I was smitten!  I just had to get that template and give it a go.  While it looked complicated at first, turns out the little tea cup and saucer are pretty easy to put together.  The hardest part was creating the "footer".  I think I did a pretty good job for my first outing with this little template.  I don't think it will be my last....
I used PTI's Vintage Cream cardstock to make the cup and saucer to give it a little more weight.  I used a little image from the WaltzingMouse set Very Vintage Labels 10 to decorate the cup.  I stamped the image using SU! Pretty in Pink.  The rim of the cup and saucer were edged with gold ink.  To finish it off I added Champagne stickles and a pink bow. 
 
Supplies:  Template:  WaltzingMouse - Tea Cup; Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream; Ink:  SU! Pretty in Pink; Encore Gold; Champagne stickles; Midori Pink Organza ribbon

One day I'll get a profile pic up here!

The teacup and saucer set is amazing- I have to ask, is it simply a paper craft, or a type of greeting card? Very nice work- simply beautiful!
