Birthday Card for Erin

 I made this card for our Office Manager's birthday.  Our gift is a bunch of Starbucks cards.  She loves Starbucks.  So I decided to do a cup themed card to go with the gift cards.  The tea cup digi was a freebie at Beyond the Fringe Crafts.  I chose five different digital prints from Carina Gardner and made them smaller.  Then I printed the card images over them.  I also printed two sets of plain white cups.  One I used as a base and the other I cut out the white portion of the cups to paper piece.  I used the a full size Carina Gardner print for the background paper.  This was actually quite a bit of fun!
