Illustrative Tea Laurel

I needed a decorative device to use on a promotional postcard and email signature and decided to make a decorative laurel featuring tea, biscuits and the usual accompanyments.

Ok, so I also snuck a cup cake in there along with the Bourbons and digestives. The design was letterpress printed by Saint Gertrude press in Melbourne.
