This is my second post today.  Scroll down to see my golden starfish card.

The sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary really appealed to me.  I love circle elements on cards, but ironically, I didn't go with a circle for this card!

I inked up the coffee cup from Perfect Blend and stamped it onto Shimmery White cardstock using Black Stazon ink.  I then colored the cup using Crumb Cake ink and the lid using Sahara Sand ink.  Some DSP from the Epic Day pack was used for the band around the middle.

For the circle element, I paper pierced an oval using the Occasions Paper Piercing Pack.  The Needlepoint EF was used down both sides of the Crumb Cake layer.  Some more of the Epic Day DSP and the large scallop framelit was used down the left side.

I stamped the sentiment onto Shimmery White cardstock and then punched with the oval punch.  Both the coffee cup and the sentiment are popped up on dimensionals.

Thanks for looking.

Great use of this set Karren, love your colours and layout. The pierced oval framing your cup is a great idea.
