Tea Cup Trio

Hi!  I'm finally back with some more cards to share!  This one is for Monday's Mojo Sketch and for Tuesday's ColourQ!

The colors for the ColourQ are: Soft Sky (I subbed with Pool Party since I no longer have any Soft Sky paper), Island Indigo (I subbed with the *new* Midnight Muse), Crushed Curry (retired In Color), Cameo Coral (retired), and Very Vanilla.  I hope I didn't make too many substitutions on this!  In all honesty, I thought the blue color in the Comfort Cafe DP was Island Indigo, but then I realized as I was putting my card together that it was Midnight Muse!

Let's talk about the ribbon I used.  It was originally the Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon that has been retired.  I haven't gotten my order of new stuff, so I didn't have any Midnight Muse ribbon, I'm out of Pool Party and the Crushed Curry just didn't look right.  So... I took Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and dyed it Midnight Muse using my ink pad.  WARNING: I do not recommend doing this!  HAHA!  My fingers are still blue from the ink and even after letting the ribbon dry 24 hours, the ink is still coming off of it!  I'm sure there is a better way to do this and maybe using the satin ribbon was my ultimate problem because the ink doesn't seem to stick.

Aside from the ribbon disaster, the rest of the card came out pretty cute, I think!  Here is my supplies list:

Supplies List:
Paper: Very Vanilla, Pool Party, Cameo Coral (retired), Autumn Spice DP (retired), Comfort Cafe DP, Good Neighbor DP (retired)
Ink: Cameo Coral (retired), Midnight Muse
Stamps: Tea Shoppe
Accessories: Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon dyed Midnight Muse (retired), Stampin' Dimensionals, 1 3/8'' circle punch, 1 1/4'' circle punch
