Touch of Gold #2

I got quite excited having made the previous notecard and started thinking about all the other designs I could work into the same basic layout, and especially how I could make the images fit with the people I was making the cards for (I'm thinking of Christmas presents for my female relatives).
A really easy fit was the tea-cup from Tea for two additions and my sister, who even as a very little girl insisted that every bedtime story ended with the line "and they all had a nice cup of tea".
I'm fighting the frame from "label basics" a little as some inks are giving a very patchy finish (seeming to bubble on the stamp). Maybe it just needs using and cleaning a few times to get it going?
The polka dots and stripe on the tea cup were added using a glue pen and then embossed with gold embossing powder.
