Fusion Card Challenge - February 27th

I have two posts today -  if you are looking for my Waltzingmouse Day 3 Sneak Peek - please scroll down to the next post!
It's Thursday and time once again for a Fusion Card Challenge -  It's exciting to see how many of you find the challenges inspiring and link up your projects over at the challenge blog!  Here's today's challenge.
For my project today, I took my inspiration from the photo -  the bag, the linens, the colors and the teacups!
This canvas bag  from Pouch Mart is 5" x 6" -  the perfect size for giving small gifts or treats.  I stamped this wonderful Eleanor Roosevelt quote and the teacup directly onto the bag with Archival Jet Black Ink.  The stamps are from two Waltzingmouse sets - Afternoon Tea and Afternoon Tea Sentiments.  I colored the teacup with Gelatos mixed with water using a small paint brush. (I put a cardstock panel inside the bag just in case the colors bled through.)  I hand sewed the lace and buttons onto the bag.  I stamped the tea tag, cut it out, stapled a piece of twine to it and adhered it to the bag with a foam dot - adhering the end of the twine on the teacup with Glue N Seal.  To finish it off, I added gold Tiny Twinkles around the rim and on the sentiment.
Now I just have to fill it with some teabags and biscotti - and I'll be ready with a gift for someone who needs a lift!

So, what inspires you the most this week??  The photo or the sketch??
