SSC62 I'm dreaming of Red paper cups!!

It's Sunday and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sunday Stamps. This week Kathya is our Hostess and she has created a fun sketch for us.

I have no idea why it's taken me so long to get the Perfect Blend Set.. The coffee cup is too cute, and I live a million miles away from a Starbucks. I don't get my fix very often and I've been seeing everyone posting pictures of the red holiday cups, so I went for a Red Starbucks cup. I used the Color Challenge from Create w/ Connie & Mary.  (Ssshh don't tell anyone but I may have a Create w/Connie & Mary 

My card base is Crumb Cake and then I cut another panel and embossed it with the Strips Folder from the Holiday Mini catalog. The DSP banners are created with the Seasons of Style DSP Stack. 

I stamped the Coffee Cup on Whisper white and colored it with the Cherry Cobbler & Crumb Cake Markers. Then I fussy Cut it and added it to a Old Olive Oval I die cut with the Big Shot. I stamped the sentiments in Crumb Cake onto some Whisper White as well and punched it out with  the 1 1/4" circle punch and layered it onto a Cherry Cobbler 1 3/8" Circle. There is a ton of dimensionals on this project. I felt it needed a little something extra so I added some Cherry Cobbler Candy Dots to the upper Left corner. 

Head over and see what the other Design Team members created at Sunday Stamps with Kathya's sketch.. Our challenge runs for 2 weeks so you have lots of time to join in. The Create w/Connie & Mary Color challenge is open until Fri 11/8 @ 12pm EST.
