What's up?

I just got some new Fluffles stamps and decided to use one of them for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #28.

My base card is Very Vanilla with three layers of paper from Basic Grey's Archaic 6 x 6 pad. This is a perfect card for my brother (who is never seen without a cup of coffee in his hand) so I didn't want any ribbon on it. But it needed something, so I wrapped some russet colored jute around the bottom and added an antique brass brad to each corner. The second element is also 3 different designs of Archaic paper. The focal image was stamped on Stamper's Select White Cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers (see below). It was sponged with Creamy Caramel and matted on two patterns of DP. It also has antique brass brads in three corners and is up on 3M foam squares. The sentiment is from MFT's set called Sassy Sayings and is stamped on Very Vanilla with Memento Rich Cocoa. It's sponged with Creamy Caramel, layered on DP, and is also up on foam squares.

Thanks for dropping in!
