You Quack Me Up

Day 4...Be sure to stop on over to the Spring Coffee Lover's BlogHop and check out all the great projects and cards...they are filled with inspiration...join in the have until the 25th to submit as many cards as you want that are Spring themed and include coffee, tea or hot chocolate.  

This card was created using the Sketch from The Outlawz, Wednesday Sketch Challenge, and the stamps that I won in a recent BlogHop for Craftin Desert Divas for their sneak preview of new products.   


The coffee cup was cut in pattern paper, the lid and sleeve in cardstock and sentiment added..  The chicks were colored with ShinHan alcohol-based pens in variable colors and fussy-cut.  A bubble cut for the other sentiment and then everything was placed on the background paper with 3D Regular or Thin Foam Tape.  

The ribbon strips across the top and bottom, along with a paper bow, were adhered to the background.  A border of the plaid design paper was cut and adhered to the inside of the card and space left for a personal note.
