Let's See You Expresso Yourself!

Are you ready to mix and match match multiple papers and have some fun with us at Iris' Spot?! Iris has a fun new challenge for you, today. She wants to see us use more than two patterned papers on our project. And, she has a fabulous sponsor, this week! The sponsor at Iris' Spot is the wonderful Whimsy Stamps, who gave our DT some fun images to work with. Thank you, Whimsy Stamps!

I'm feeling all girlie this week! My project today uses this adorable mug image from Melissa Jenkins at Whimsy Stamps. I felt like a color combo of pinks and browns would be perfect for this adorable image. And, it gave me a chance to use some fun things from my stash, that I haven't ever used! The image has been punched with the large flower punch, by Stampin Up, and colored with Promarkers. For my card layout, I used the sketch at The Pixie Cottage, as well as incorporating their optional theme of "Sparkle," and the sketches at Sketch and Stash, Stamp With Fun and Heartsong Inspirations. My awesome pink sparkly ribbon is from my stash, as are the flowers. I've used all scrap papers from my scrap box. The flowers are by Prima. The adhesive pearls are from the 99 cent bling booth at the Scrapbook expo I attended over the weekend. I used a Promarker to color in the pearls, to get the color I wanted. How cool is that?! The flowers have had glitter and sparkle added to them with my trusty clearstar gelly roll pen.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
