Double Trouble 97A - Deja-Brew

Welcome to a BONUS challenge in addition to our regular challenges. The Coffee Lover's Blog Hop is happening this week and all the design team members are participating in that. 

The small graphic is below - please visit the Double Trouble Challenge Blog for more information.

I used the current sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday for my card. 

I masked and stamped sets of teacups for the focal image on my card. The patterned paper I used dictated the colours for the designs on the teacups. The background was embossed with a basket weave embossing folder and there is a small tag that sides out from under the teacups to reveal the sentiment. There are two photos below that show the tag in and the tag pulled out. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret the challenge this week.

I am also linking up my card with the sketch challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday where I am a design team member and with the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.
