The Challenge 71-Thanks a Latte

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! ***

The Challenge is back with a new challenge!  Since it's the first Monday of the month, we're featuring a sketch challenge this week.  I put together a coffee themed thank you card using stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs.

Thanks a Latte card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea StampsI used a pink and kraft color scheme for my design, mixing and matching solid papers with scraps of patterned ones for the cardfront.  The "thanks a" from the Espresso Yourself set was stamped in kraft ink on a cream Zig Zag Stitched Circle die cut.  I die cut the word "latte" from the SugarCuts Coffee Words set from dark brown cardstock to complete the sentiment.  The die word was adhered to a piece of SugarPuff foam for dimension.  I also added a die cut to go cup to the sentiment panel. The cup's sleeve was cut from one of the same patterned papers I used on the cardfront to help tie all of the elements together.

Check out what the rest of the talented team at The Challenge has created based on this week's sketch.  Here's where to find them:
