Monday and a card for some Challenges

Hello everyone!! I hope your Monday is going well. I wanted it to snow some more so we could have a three day weekend but the snow gods did not cooperate!! No, I am fine with it. Just have a lot to do. Would like a snow day more at the end of the week but it is supposed to get into the 40's!

Today I am showcasing a card that I created using Sunny Studio "Mug Hugs" stamp and die set. I bought this BEFORE Christmas hoping to use it but never did. This is not a Christmas card but more of a "friend" card.

I used the Fab Friday #103 Sketch as my inspiration, though I did place the sentiment banner at the top right of the image rather then the bottom left.

I started by stamping the to go cup and one of the hot chocolate cups from "Mug Hugs" onto a white panel that I had die cut with a Mama Elephant die from "Peek a Frame."

I layered the frame over three pieces of patterned paper from my stash that had pink, green and black in them so I could play with this week's "Color Throwdown" Challenge #424.

I then layered a die cut cup of cocoa that I had stamped onto patterned paper and cut out. I adhered a pink candy cane, some marshmallows and at heart over the cup.

My last step was to stamp the sentiment onto a green banner and adhere it to the card using foam adhesive.

This card was so fun to make and will be using this set again in the near future as I stamped and colored a TON of cute images so they would be ready to make into a card.

I am also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamps "Wednesday Challenge" Blog for "New Something." My stamp set was brand new, never been used before!!
I thank you for taking the time to stop by today!! Have a fabulous Monday!!
