Funky Cup ~ CCMC389 & PP277, The Card Concept 46

Hello and welcome to another fabulous challenge week with Create with Connie and Mary!  
We've got a sketch challenge for you this time....
I also used the color combo from The Paper Players 277 to complete my card and the inspiration photo from The Card Concept. I was inspired by the coffee cup and the heart shape. I guess my card would be considered clean and layered.

The moment I saw this Cups and Kettle framelits die set, I knew it would be mine!  I just love this cute coffee mug, plus all the other cutouts available in the set.
I cut the mug out from the Wildflower Fields DSP available through the Sale-a-bration catalog. With any $50 purchase paper pack can be yours!  Check it out here.

I created my own patterned background paper by punch some 1/2" circle from red foil paper and then adhering them to my Melon Mambo cardstock.  I love the way this looks!  
To add an extra punch of pattern, I layered some Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum (also available in the Sale-a-bration) over my Tempting Turquoise horizontal pieces. I stamped the sentiment from {Cottage Greetings} with Stazon ink directly onto the vellum.
The steam and heart on the mug are also die cut from the Cups and Kettle framelits.  The little flower is from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack and is finished off with a black sequin center from my Metallic Sequin Assortment.  
For the steam I used the curly-cue die that is meant to be an embellishment on the tea cup.  I just cut it apart and layered it together to look like steam rising from the cup!

I hope you can play along with us at Create with Connie and Mary this week!
