Happy Thoughts

This month's Get Your Diva On challenge was to make a monochromatic card. I've been using lots of kraft neutrals, so I continued on.

I stamped the to go cup from Better With You, colored and then paper pieced the cup sleeve with kraft that has been crimped. The sentiment was a Verve freebie with purchase, but it matches the fonts found in Great Friend. I traced the steam with a gold AtYou Spica Glitter Pen.

The leaf cluster/ branch is from W Plus 9, Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions. I was anxious to use this week's sketch from the clean&simple blog, FTL158. The large vanilla panel was embossed using a woodgrain embossing folder.

I like this card's rustic, homespun feel; perfect to give a friend a happy thought.
