House of Cards - November Challenge

November 1st - already? Time sure flies by when you're having fun. It's time for a new challenge at House of Cards

Holiday &/or Colors

Here's my card

I was inspired by the hot beverages on the photo inspiration and incorporated a holiday (Christmas) theme as well as incorporating some of the colours of this month's challenge onto my card. I used Paper Smooches' Cozy Coffee die to die cut the coffee cup from three different cardstocks - 2 shades of gray and a Christmas print. For the background, I used Tim Holtz' Layering Mini Stencil Collection Set 3, distress ink (pumice stone) and an ink blending tool for the splats and coffee rings. The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp's Hot Cocoa Phoebe stamped with Hero Arts Cup O' Joe shadow ink. 

We'd love to see what you create for our November challenge.
