SNSDC87 - Sweet 'N Sassy Challenge

I've made this card for SNSDC87 at Sweet N' Sassy Challenge using Teacup Cocoa. The challenge is to use an image of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. What a coincidence! I am involved with a swap in a private group on FB and the theme is drinks! Woohoo! Two birds with one stone... gotta love that!!

I've visited blogs where other crafters kill more than two, three, four even five birds with one stone. They'll make a card that will fit into more than one challenge... I should try that sometime... it's better than posting two cards per day for two separate challenges! That's got my attention! ;) lol But... and it's a big but... I have a history of... Reading. Guidelines. Incorrectly. :( ... I cannot tell you how many deadlines I've missed... or used the wrong image... really... I can't... first... it's made me cry more than once... plus... it's embarrassing! :-\

So my earlier mention of killing two birds with one stone... I have to stick with that for awhile... it's just the way it's got to be... for now... ;) ... anyway...

These are the Copic markers I used to color the image:
Reds: RV69, RV29, R37, R46
Grays: N00, N2, N4
Pinks: R20
Browns: E35, E13
Here is the card:

I used card stock and printed paper from my stash. The ribbon and adhesive gems are from Michael's. I cut out a large circle frame with my Spellbinders' scalloped circles die cut and a small heart with the scalloped hearts die cut. The tiny tag and sentiment are from The Angel Company which is now defunct. :'( I loved TAC! :'(

So this happens to be the SECOND time I've killed two birds with one stone. :) The first time... I was SPOTLIGHTED by Sweet 'N Sassy... for my Cookies Tea card. :) Another coincidence... really... it is!! lol I bought several of these cute Cookie and Cocoa images with coffee or tea for that very swap. I thought they were just too adorable! Ssooo... you may see a couple more of these cards with Sweet 'N Sassy images if the theme of the challenge works in my favor! :)
