Espresso My Thanks

Hello. Today's card is inspired by two challenges. The design is inspired by 2 Sketches 4 You challenge #62 and the colors are from Off the Wall Craftiness challenge #27.

Not sure I have ever attempted this much paper piecing for one card. The coffee mug was stamped five times to create the focal point. I added Glossy Accents to the coffee and steam.

Paper: SEI "Granny's Kitchen", glitter paper from Target; Stamps: Stampin Up's "Espresso Yourself"; Stampin Up Basic Brown ink and Distress Faded Jeans; Martha Stewart "Loops" Punch; Glossy Accents; Stampin Up ribbon

Thanks for looking. May something make you giggle today! -Kelly
