Share Joy Challenge #52

Hello, hello!

I am bringing this week's latest Share Joy Challenge! I was just noticing that we are at number 52! Wow! I don't know if you've played along, but we would love for you to join us this time around! Let's get to my card..

I used the adorable Joe To-Go mini stamp set, with matching die, along with a few strips of masculine colored TE card stocks to give my coffee cups a place to rest. I cut them in various widths and adhered them to my white card base.

Taking some water color paper, I stamped, and die cut the coffee cups, and painted them in with Distress Inks, allowed them to dry, and adhered them with foam tape onto the card front. I added my sentiment, and called it done!

Below is the graphic, as well as the rules to play along. I hope to see you there!

Challenge Format:

Each week we will be bring you two types of challenges that you can use separately or together to inspire your creativity. One of the challenges will always be a sketch.
