Coffee Break

For todays post I wanted to share with you a card I made for a coworker who is in love with Starbucks.

The picture does not do it justice. 
For the cup I freehanded the shape and inked the edges with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. 
The "warmer" is just a piece of kraft paper ran thru my crimper
and inked with a bit of Distress ink in Vintage Photo. 
The green circle is a left over piece that I ran thru the cuttlebug using a spellbinder,
same thing or the white circle.
The cover for the top I freehanded it, cut out and then cut out another one for the edge and used foam tape to give it dimension.

Challenge Card

I know its been awhile since I last posted, and honestly I have no excuses just been busy with life.  BUT I'm back and ready to get into the game again!
For today's card I am entering it in the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge.

For this card I started off with glossy paper and alcohol inks to give it that stainglass look. 
The white frame was made with CLD Cathedral Lace dl148. 
The butterfly is also from CLD exotic butterfly dl113
and the flower in middle was cut on the cricut and rolled up. 
 I love how they all work together and really put the
attention on the beautiful scroll work of the frame.
