Warm Happiness around the world!

I really wanted to play the World Card-Making Day challenges posted for Papertrey Ink!  Nichole Heady challenged everyone to make a card representing the styles and cultures from 4 different countries...Japan, Mexico, India, and Australia!  I made my first card for Australia, using the "Warm Happiness" set by Heather Nichols, but then I thought...what if I kept out the SAME set, and just changed the styles to match the different countries?!  It turned out to be SO much fun for me!  So here are my 4 entries...come on a little journey and enjoy a "cuppah" something good as we travel around the world!

coffee in Australia

tea in Japan

cocoa in Mexico

and tea in India

Used lots of PTI cardstock and other PTI sets (besides Warm Happiness), including Polka Dot Basics, Background Basics Retro, and Guide Lines II.

Such a fun challenge, thanks for posting it Nichole...and for the chance to win some AWESOME prizes!

Kelly, these are outrageously awesome!! I love your creative idea to represent the drinks from the different countries using the same stamp set. Each one is so cute!

How clever to do drinks for the different countries! I only had time to make two of the four. I especially love the gold leaf paper for India!
