Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge - March 2017

Hello everyone! Today is a very exciting day - today marks the beginning of another month-long challenge where you could win a $25 gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties shop. Be sure to stop by Paper Sweeties to get some inspiration on their wonderful blog and in their gallery, do some shopping, and then come play along with us in this month's challenge.  Here is March's wonderful inspiration photo:

The challenges over at Paper Sweeties are always ANYTHING GOES with the inspiration photo as your jump-off point. So you can use the colors, shapes, or theme to help you create your project. Here's the card I made using the "coffee" theme, and I pulled pinks out of the picture too:

This card is actually a bit of a sneak peek - I stamped the super cute coffee/tea pot and cups from You Warm My Heart (coming soon!) and colored them with my Copics. The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder on a teal strip cut out with the Sweet Cuts Sweet Borders die. 

Both the image and sentiment were popped up with some foam squares for added dimension. All products used are linked at the bottom of this post :)

Please be sure to check out what the rest of my Paper Sweeties team mates have created for you - sooo much amazing talent - then be sure to come play with us!
