More Inspiration from the Simon Says Stamp October 2014 Card Kit
Today's card started with an accident. I stamped out the mug and added the orange stamped stripe at the bottom and the sentiment, but somewhere along the way while coloring the coffee, I ended up with a dot of brown on the mug. Boo! Not ready to just throw it all away, I started adding dots all over the top of the cup. When I was done, I decided it was good enough to keep, but I needed something that could handle the orange. I decided to use the orange left over from a previous card along with this funky patterned paper with hints of orange. I cut the funky paper down just a bit smaller than my card base, cut the orange to about a third of the size of the card and layered them up. I stamped the steam in Khaki and (gasp) fussy cut it. Then I added my cup to the card, the fussy cut steam and some sequins from the kit to finish it off.
