Christmas Coffee ~ MOJO319 & CCMC276

I spent the day with my sister in law, Jamie, the yesterday and she had on a cute outfit using these colors.  Here shirt was red and light gray striped and she paired it with a turquoise tank that peeked out the bottom of the shirt and topped it with a coordinating turquoise scarf.  I was so inspired by her outfit that couldn't wait to get home and make a card. And, I knew these were the same challenge colors over at Create with Connie and Mary this week!  LOVE it when that happens!  I looked for a sketch to use and settled on Mojo Monday 319
I did tweak the color a little and used Cherry Cobbler instead of Real Red.  I'm so pleased with the results!  I haven't had a chance to use my Perfect Blend set much and I think it works so well in a Christmas Card.  These colors are such fun and worked well with the stamp set.
I used the little snowflake from Snow Day stamped onto the Smokey Slate background and also used the saying "warm wishes" from that same set.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to place the words on the cup.  I also paper pieced the Coastal Cabana DSP onto the cup and colored the lid with my Smokey Slate marker.  A little Silver Glimmer paper and Frosted Finishes Embellishment add just the right amount of sparkle!
