Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge; Tea, anyone?

This week's challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil is Fantasies & Fairies.  I made one of my most favourite cards here just a couple of weeks ago using Mo's white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland called "Late".   I actually liked it so much that I've decided to keep it.  I thought I might get a shadow box frame and pop it on the wall in my craft room.  
It was hubby's birthday yesterday and, in keeping with the fantasy challenge, I chose to make him a similar card but this time using Mo's Mad Hatter which was a gift from best matey, Julie.  Now Mo doesn't allow sharing of her images - quite right too! - but Julie purchased this image twice by mistake and she asked Mo if she could give one of them to me.  So thank you Julie for this (and any future craft-purchasing mistakes you might make!) and thank you, Mo, for agreeing!   I like this card very much too and whereas I actually did give it to hubby for his birthday, I intend to take it back in the New Year and add it to my Craft Wall!    I have a sneaky suspicion that I might have to buy the Queen of Hearts, Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee and maybe Alice too!
I used K&Co papers again and the same basic sketch, altered slightly.  I liked the idea that this card would match up well with my previous one.  I was surprised by how many tea-type images and accessories I had.  The cups and sentiment are from a Fiskers set but I actually drew the one behind the Mad Hatter myself.  All of the crockery is glazed and it is such a shame that doesn't show up in the photo.  My favourite bits (apart from the image itself, of course) are my home made teabags.  Fiskers had a tea-bag stamp in the set and I stamped it on an actual tea-bag as well as on to some green card stock.  These home-made embellishments actually contain real tea! 
On the inside it says "You're tea-riffic and I'm mad about you!"
