You're Just my Cup of Tea! (a just because card)

As you may have guessed from the severe lack of cards on my blog recently I have been "under the weather" with a nasty case of the flu. It has been so debilitating and I have heard it is taking 6 weeks to completely regain your energy levels :( I had a good morning though on Wednesday and so decided to venture back into my craft room. There was a new challenge I spotted with a freebie to use so I thought I'd give it a go.
I managed to fit in a few of my favorite challenges that I have been passing by recently as quite a few had "choice" or "recipe" style challenges so I combined them to make the foundation for the card, great when your mojo is on the blink :)

I quite like how it all turned out, soft subtle colors, a few of my favorite things and a new image to play with.
Hopefully I will be fighting fit sooner rather than later and I hope you liked my new little card (and if you are quick you should be able to grab the freebie and have a go yourself)
