A Cup of Kindness

This week Cooking With Cricut is having a challenge using green, purple and a sketch.  Here is the sketch
This is one time when I saw the sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  So here is my card.

This card measures 6.5 x 5. The scalloped mat is made with K&Co paper and cut from the Storybook cartridge.  I used AC Specialties paper for the gold mat and cut it from the Elegant Edges cartridge.  I then added a little black mat that was embossed with a Damask folder and inked in gold.  And of course the focal point of the card is the teacup.  I just LOVE this teacup and spoon.  It is from Kate's ABC's.  Isn't it just one of the cutest teacups ever!!  

The sentiment I created on the computer.  I used a Fiskars corner punch on the upper left corner and them tied a two ribbons there.  I then added Recollections gems to the sentiment and floral mat.  And lastly, I added glitter glue to the spoon.  There is just something special about this card that makes me smile.  

Please join us this week at Cooking With Cricut and show us your green and purple creations with the sketch.  And most of all you will not want to miss all of the wonderful creations from the fabulous Design Team.
