Here is my sample for the challenge! I picked a light shade of yellow to complete my color combo!

Quick notes: I used one of the stamps from Sassy Circles to create a dotted background on a piece of Kraft cardstock with Whisper White Craft ink for my background. Then added a strip of Kraft colored designer paper and layered on So Saffron cardstock. A bit of paper piercing and rhinestones finished this layer.

For the focal point I stamped a sentiment from Look Who's Perky on PTI Select white cardstock and paper pierced. I then stamped one of the cups from the same set, colored with Copic markers and trimmed. To finish I punched an oval from So Saffron cardstock and assembled all of the layers together with dimensional foam dots. Add a couple of rhinestones and affixed to the Kraft layer with yet more dimensionals. I then added some ribbon and tied it into a bow over the main image. The last step was just using more dimensionals to adhere the piece to a card base made from PTI Select white cardstock.
