Curtain Call: cuppa cocoa




Hello!


Really thrilled about the new

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge

We have a fabulous new sponsor, My Favorite Things, for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Cuppa Cocoa challenge!  The LEAD of this challenge will receive a $20 gift certificate to use at My Favorite Things!



I was inspired by the coffee mug and used THIS cut file for my Cameo.  I swiped it with a couple different blue Distress Inks & 'filled' in the cocoa with PTI kraft cardstock.  The Rose is by My Favorite things and I used the coordinating dies...I used Impress celery wool for added texture.

My Favorite Things Contemporary Roses stamps & coordinating dies.



You won't want to miss what our special guests and crew have whipped up for Cuppa Cocoa!
