There was an awesome freebie during the hop (it's available until October 15 if you'd like to go snag it for yourself!), and I just had to use it before the hop ended. It's called Latte Love from Super Sponsor Verve Stamps. Thank you, Verve Stamps! I love this set! I coloured the cup with watercolour markers and inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I fussy-cut and popped it up with foam tape and affixed it to a stitched Gift Tag (Top Dog Dies).
I started with a white note card and added an orange panel which I embossed with Darice - Leaves Assorted Pattern. Then I added a piece of burlap which I hand-cut into a banner shape. I was following this sketch at Viva La Verve Sketches (Week 3):
I added a bunch of leaves (Impression Obsession Small Leaf Set) that I had left over from a previous project, some beautiful seam-binding ribbon that I won from Little Scrap Pieces (thank you, Karen!), a metal leaf charm, and a cute puffy squirrel sticker.
