Just One Sip...

FINALLY... found some time to create a card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Using the sketch over at Retro Sketches (#207), I thought it would be a perfect fit for my new Cool Cup dies & Stay Cool stamp set from My Favorite Things!



AND I used the combinations from the MFT Color Challenge #41



Since I don't have these exact card stock colors, I used the best matches I could find in my stash to put together my card...

One Sip

I colored the cup using a few shades of Distress Ink (Tea Dye, Antique Linen & Walnut Stain) to mimic a delicious mocha frapp! It's a little hard to see in the photo, but I die cut the 'whipped cream' from felt, and also added a clear dome lid! :)

Whew!... I think that may be a record for me on the number of challenges I've entered with one card!

Hope to find some more time (& inspiration) to create at least another card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.. because in case you didn't know- I *love* my coffee! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
