Spring Into Card Making IG Hop - Week 5

Hello friends; I hope you're having a great day.  I'm back to share this week's card for the Spring Into Card Making IG Hop, which has been organised by my lovely friend Kelly.  Each week we will be sharing a themed card focusing on the joys of spring.  If our hop inspires you please use the hashtag #2024springintocardmakinghop to join in the fun.  
This week our inspiration is 'tea party' so grab all your stamps and dies with a tea theme and join in the fun.  I love this image and have used it quite a few times before but it was perfect for this week's theme.  
Here is my card:
a close up of the image:
plus I decorated the inside:
I began by cutting a white panel 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" and using the fun teacup stencil and some yellow ink created my background.  I matted this onto a black panel cut to 4" x 5 1/4".  I stamped the girl image and coloured her with Promarkers (+ 1 tri-blend marker) before using the matching die to cut her out.  I added some white highlights with a gelly roll pen.  I used a die to cut a lacey oval from vellum and added my image on top with foam squares; this was then adhered to the panel with liquid glue (making sure to only add it behind the image so that it wouldn't show through the vellum).  I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner in black ink.  I finished with a few pastel pearls.  For the inside I masked a small portion at the bottom of the white panel and used the same stencil and ink to create a coordinating border.  I stamped a sentiment in black ink in the centre.  Once again I matted the panel onto a black panel and added it to the card base with double sided tape.  A fairly simple, bright and colourful card.

I would like to add my card into the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps & More challenge - die cut and/or stencil (I used both)
Color Throwdown challenge - pink/green/yellow
Dream Valley challenge - spring colours
Fab 'n' Funky challenge - add a sentiment

Inspired By challenge - umbrellas (I was inspired by the colours)
Stamping Sensations challenge - spring mood board (inspired by the colours)
