Afternoon Tea, Anyone?

Some stamp sets needed an inking up. I have a huge pile of stamps that haven't made first encounter with an ink pad. So to rectify that, the next Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge was the perfect reason excuse to dive into those new stamps.

This card started out with the Afternoon Tea stamp set in mind.

Afternoon Tea Invite Card
Stamps: Afternoon Tea (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Paper: Preppie Pack - Beige (Bazzill Basics Paper), Porcelain (Basic Grey), Scrap Pack - Brown (Recollections), scrap pattern paper (?)
Ink: Earth Elements - Chocolate Chip (Stamping Up!), Brilliance - Pearlescent Orchid (Tsukineko)
Embellishments: Spool 'o Ribbon - Pink (Offray), Arch Lattice Edge Puncher (Martha Stewart)

I wanted to know how the Brilliance pink ink would stamp on a dark card stock. I like the little shimmer that it gave off, and ended up creating my own pattern paper. The Porcelain pattern paper from Basic Grey seemed too appropriate and cute to pass up. Add a lace border and the card is done.

So what do you ladies have with your tea? Scones? Cookies? What's your weaknesses for sweets?
