Shopping Our Stash #85 "Suits Me to a T"

Happy Tuesday!
It is time for another challenge at Shopping Our Stash!
Challenge #85:  "Suits Me to a T"- use at least two items that start with "T"- for example: tag, tape, twine, trees, tinsel, tattered angels products, tin foil, tin cans, trim, tea bag, tea cup, tomahawk, tangerine, tigers, turtle,  etc.  Be sure to list what they are in your post!
At first I was a little stumped and could only find one or two things to use so I let my project sit overnight and when I came back the next day....voila! several other items came to mind!

Thinking of You card

"T" ingredients + other stuff:
Teal card stock- Paper Studio
Teal Prima roses
Twine- Sew Easy "Fancy Floss"*
Tea-dyed Bias Tape
Texture plate- Fiskar "Filigree"

The oldest items used are the bias tape and the button (they are both 20+ years!) but all of the other stuff has been in my stash for at least a year or two. All the smaller paper/cs pieces are from scraps I saved from other projects.
As always, I hope you are inspired to join in this challenge! Please visit our main blog and post your project there so we can see all of your "T" craft items too!

OMG! Sandie! What an amazing "T" recipe! When I am stumped on a challenge I will be seeking out inspiration from you that's for sure!! This card is so very pretty. I love the bow. I thought about tea-staining something but ran out of time. Great job!

Oh man, I have to laugh, because I looked through all my Distress inks, and of course I don't have any colours starting with T. NEVER thought of TIM, duh!
Love the super-feminine embellishment cluster - and what an awesome list of T!
