a cup of tea...

Hey friends... getting this post done before the day gets going.  It is going to be another gorgeous one and I want to make sure that we get out and enjoy that sunshine!!  I created this card using the first sketch for the June Viva La Verve challenge, as well as the Verve Diva Dare challenge (eat me drink me).  I'm not a coffee drinker (my favorite is a tall Starbucks Chai latte with soy milk... no water), but I will be entering this into the Summer Coffee Lovers blog hop since you can also enter tea or hot cocoa related cards.  Papers are from the My Mind's Eye Jubilee line and the stamp set used is Verve's One Cup.   The banners were cut using a die from the Verve Flag It die set.  Tried to keep things simple, but added some interest with a little paper piecing, some partial embossing and a bit of distressing.  



 
 
Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI rustic white; PP:  My Mind's Eye; Stamps:  Verve; Dies:  Verve and Spellbinders; Wilton paper doily; Decorative Dots embossing folder
