One Cup at a Time

I'm linking up one project to the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop on the
very last day, just under the wire. Thank goodness for DST. I think I made it.
Here's my card, using a panel of stenciled flowers that wasn't perfect but
works out fine for a ceramic coffee cup.

I've been playing with layered stencils and Altenew's Hill Blossoms arrived 
together with their detailed blending brushes. I am super messy, no matter how
much I mask. So a smudged panel was cut with a Marianne Design mug die
and inked around the edges.

I ran a kraft card base through an old embossing folder for a bit of texture, and
remembered to stamp the sentiment before that for a better impression.
I trimmed the panel a bit to let the cup extend beyond the edges, then
popped up the mug.
Thanks to Amy, and her Coffee Crew for another successful hop!
