Miss You A Latte!

Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday!

I was SO excited that I was able to get in a little stampy time...this SUPER darling new A La Modes Miss You A Latte from My Favorite Things arrived while I was in the hospital (along with her friend A La Modes Candy Cane Kisses) and I couldn't wait to ink her up!!

I started with last week's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC301 for the layout. I stamped this sweetie in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers.

I cut out and embossed the focal panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and while the cardstock was in the nestie, I sponged the edges with Memento Desert Sand and Memento Potters Clay.

All the patterned paper is from Tinsel & Twig by The Girls Paperie...YUM! I love the patterns in this collection and I LOVE how they lend themselves to everyday cards, not just for Christmas! I sponged the edges of each pattern with Memento Potters Clay to age them a bit, and each layer, including the focal panel, was sewn on my sewing machine.

The cardstock (except for the Suede Brown Dark), patterned paper (Tinsel & Twig), ribbon and pearls are all from the brand new Tinsel & Twig Project Pantry Kit from Taylored Expressions. I created the bow with the Bow Easy!

I decided to leave off a sentiment for now, as I am not sure yet who will receive this card!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
