Love at First Sip

Hello friends!   Today I have my final card that I made for the Verve anniversary challenges this week - my take on the clean and simple challenge!  Tonight's the big release night and I'm afraid my credit card is going to get a workout!  :)  This was a clean and simple challenge and I went with one of my favorite sets, Better with You.

I started off with a cream background and stamped the "stain" in light brown ink and the sentiment over the top in dark brown.  I then stamped the three cups and pieced some cork paper for their little sleeves.  I was quite tempted but resisted the urge to dig through my trash can for an old (gross) cork coaster to make real ones.  I think the recipient of this card will thank me!  :)

I am also submitting this card to the Moxie Fab World repetition challenge in honor of the new Card Design Handbook.  I just ordered my copy and can't wait to get it!  I think I remember a lot of the principles from art school but it is easy to forget them and rely on my eye a little too much, lol! 

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Supplies:  Stamps (Verve), Cardstock - Vintage Cream (PTI), Ink - Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake (SU!), DP - Story Teller collection (Crate Paper)
