Tea for Two

I really have not been playing much in challenges these past few weeks because of time constraints. This week in Flourish's Timeless Tuesday the challenge is to make your focal image PINK.
When I sat down to play yesterday, I realized I only had about a 1/2 hour by the time I was done posting and commenting.
Checking over the Flourish stamps I have, of course it had to be one of my Valentine stamps. I used the tea cups from Token of MY Affection set.
My next challenge was time .... this is when I decided I could make a great ACT with these images. ACT's are not always faster to make, I did think it would be different sooo, just to enter something different I went for it.
I used my new TH flourish embossing folder with whitewash core dinations. I stamped the tea cups once on the paper and once on white paper, colored both with pink copics and  fussy cut the white ones out, popped them over the other. I stamped and clear embossed the good for one kiss medallion directly on the card. Added a heart with the sentiment stamped in pink outlined the heart with copics. Punched out a heart edge, topped that with black glimmer mist sprayed lace. 
I did end up running out of time so I finished it after work and this morning.
I really hope everyone likes it. 
Have a very fun day and I will be back on Friday.
