Impression Obsession's ~What Do You Like To Drink Challenge

Hi Everybody!

Impression Obsession is having a "What Do You Like To Drink" Challenge. I am entering this card into their challenge.  I purchased these stamps from Dolce Stamps and Cards and wanted to show them some ink.

I used Coffee Mug-B4307 and colored it with Copics B21, B23, B24, E47, COO and CO.  Die cut it using Spellbinders Circles Dies . To do the ribbon, I put score tape on the back and scrunched the Gold Wired Ribbon behind it and popped it up with EK 3D Dots.  To make it sparkle a tad I used the Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen on some parts of the cup, circle panel and around the sentiment panel.

The paper I used is something I tend to hoard!  It is Gmund Treasury. One side is the most luxurious gold and the other side is a rich regal looking blue. Note to self....stop hoarding!  I stamped the Coffee Beans-B4310 on the blue side of the paper with Versamark.  I love this Fleur De Lis
Spellbinders!  I used the sentiment Succesful woman-D5408 for my sentiment.

 I added a panel att the bottom to hold a gift card.  I did this by using Scor-Tape on 3 sides, leaving the top open.  This will actually hold a Tim Hortons Coffee gift card .  I just used this Bootlegger card to show how it works.

I finished my card off by framing it with Spellbinders Labels 1 and some gold wired ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by  and I hope you have a most wonderful day!!
