Tea and cake

Less is More are challenging us to use Designer Paper but still in a CAS way.

I chose the paper as I fancied a tea set in this pattern:

There are two cakes as one is for a friend, you understand, and I promise you the cup is straight.
The paper is from a book called The Paper Stack which I bought a while back, in WH Smith.
I've used paper for this teacup and also the cake cases which are a pale blue stripe.
Zig zag stamps - Casual Fridays
Flower and words - Hobby Art 
Cup and cake stamps - unknown, included in a goody bag from a show, I suspect they were free on a magazine once. 
I'm also skipping over to Pixie's Snippets playground to show as I've used snippets - not many but it all helps!
I think I like it but am not quite sure. Let me know what you think. x
