Cuppa flowers and wishes

Back from a well spent holiday with parents and couldn't wait to start on this project.
This is an altered teacup and spoon and have used a cd for the base! There are layers of lace,doily and flourishes and then the cup sits atop with all the lovely blue flowers all handmade and inked and edged with silvery glitter too!

There was so much to do in this altered cup and spoon...loads of silver embelies, different types,colors and techniques of butterflies, glitter silver net,bells,charms and silver chain which have added so much of bling to this project.
Love the way the sentiment tag hangs from the cup and the "congrats" tag peeping from the foliage on the spoon...it was sheer delight working on this makeover.

I am planning to give this to my niece who is going abroad to pursue her PhD!
Please let me know how this cuppa looks..with flowers, butterflies and foliage spilling from all sides!!!!
Thanks for stopping by...
