Double D, Kitchen Is The Heart Of The Home

Good Morning!
A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 

Check out this Inspirational Tile!

I was drawn to the pretty colors and the cups.
And what I hope my kitchen holds, lots of love and kindness.

My cup is from the Gina K Designs stamp set, Fill It With Flowers (so I did!).  I stamped this on to a piece of chipboard and then some pretty patterned paper covered in hearts.  Fussy cut them all out and layered together.  Raven Black ink.

Pretty Designer Paper from my stash, the colors worked beautifully. 
Kindness by Simon Says
Foliage 1 & 2 by Paper Smooches
Small Gardenia by Cheery Lynn
Thin Teal Ribbon
Pleated Pink Ribbon
Nuvo Drops in Dandelion Yellow
Adhesive Rhinestones

My cup runneth over.

Lots of textures and dimension.

This card measures 5.5 inches square, so I made a very simple envelope for it. 
Gina K Designs; Happy Mail & Stuffed With Love stamp sets.

Copic Marker.
