Tea time! Bugs & Critters at Sunshine Mail

Happy September! It's time for a new Sunshine Mail Foundation Challenge (September 1-15). Our theme is "Bugs & Critters" and the only real rule is that you send in at least one card (it doesn't have to be the card you enter in the challenge; Donation guidelines here).  

We are sponsored by Wings and Willows, so I used their Sleep Tight digi stamp:

I just adore this DP by Jillibean Soup; I wish had more from this collection. I've been slowly using this lovely 12x12 sheet. I used some of the scrap to make the flower.

Keeping with the Tea theme, I decided to try my hand at the Teabag-Folding Technique. I used the Kite Fold Flower Tutorial at Sandy's Space.

The Bowl of Sugar and Spoon on the sentiment banner are Starform outline stickers. I cut the piece with an amuse studio die, stamped a sentiment in brown Memento ink, and added a border with a Gold Leaf pen.
