Care for a cuppa......

Guys there's gonna be a slew of posts from me....I just realised that I haven't posted any of the cards that I've made and all the challenges are coming to an end.....August is almost done with!! Wow!! How fast can time really fly??!!! I've got a few more things to post.....not cards but some other stuff that I've been making. Will post them soon too.

So this one's made with two challenges in was the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #43 and the other is the Beyond Grey Challenge - Latte Love

The sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch is 

At Beyond Grey Challenges the theme is coffee + stitching. 

Here's my take for these two challenges.  

The card obvioulsy is CAS. The coffee takeaway cup is entirely handmade. The patterned paper is a free printable and the sentiment is printed. The pp has been distressed with ink first (vintage photo) and then distressed the edges with my exacto tool. Tried to capture it in the pic below.

I don't have a sewing tool and so made some faux stitching on the PP.

So that's all from me on this post.
