Here's the sketch:

And, here's the color combination:

Here’s my card incorporating both challenges.  I used the Daily Grind set from Market Street Stamps for my card. I stamped the to-go cup image in Rich Cocoa ink on a scrap of white cardstock. After coloring in the little round logo in the cup, I cut it out and used dimensional dots to attach it to a white panel. The “how’ve you bean” sentiment is stamped beneath the cup and the wispy steam image is stamped in gray ink above it.

I used a patterned paper panel from the new Autumn Spice paper pad from Lily Bee Design to cover most of the cardfront. The triangle panel’s made from layered blue and kraft cardstocks. After putting the triangle in place, I machine stitched around the panel’s edges for a nice finished look before adhering the image panel. The image is accented with a brown button tied with matching baker’s twine.

We're looking forward to seeing what you create for the challenges.  Happy stamping--and happy shopping!
