Vintage Tea

This card is for the Michigan Mingle Challenge on SCS. We had to make a card using teabag staining. And it had to be vintage. Vintage is my favorite style and I haven't used it in a very long time. Since we have been having a snowstorm all last night and today I used snowflakes. It sure is beautiful outside. I love Michigan!!! All of you should move here if you don't live here already.
To tea stain you soak tea bags in water and then take the tea bag(s) and rub it(them) all over your cardstock. If you want, let the teabag tear and get some of the tea itself onto the cardstock. Use a papertowel to soak up some of the water. Let the cardstock dry and then stamp your project.

Set: Snow Swirled, verse is from Stampabilities and it is Matthew 11:28.
Come unto Me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Stamp Pads: Choc. Chip and Baja Breeze
CS: Baja Breeze, Choc. Chip, Confetti White
Accessories: Pretties Kit, Ivory Organdy Ribbon (use Heat Tool to curl), Circle punches, Scallop Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Tool Kit, Cutter kit, sponges. The largest circle and circle scallop punch are not SU. All items © Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.

The challenges are in the 3rd post of this thread.
