Warm Wishes

Happy Wednesday! The weekend is in sight, and I'm feeling good! If you missed my fun announcement from yesterday, click here to read all about it!

I've got a fun card to share with you today. I loved Dawn's colors for this week's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge. The fall-inspired colors got me thinking about warm apple cider and hot chocolate, so I inked up my Let's Get Together set from There She Goes. I paper pieced my cup and added some crimped paper to mimic a coffee cup sleeve. Fall also makes me think of fleece and fuzzy sweaters, so I added felt ribbon and a corduroy brad for some texture. What do you think?

Stamps: Let's Get Together (There She Goes), All Occasion (Hero Arts)
Paper: Kraft, Very Vanilla, PTI dp
Ink: Adirondack Espresso
Accessories: ribbon (SU), brad (Imaginisce), paper crimper, corner rounder punch, dimensionals
