Live with Laughter!

I've enjoyed doing sketch challenges lately and today I found one I haven't done yet - Diva Coffee Break Challenge. I love coffee, but am good and only have one cup and have cut down on the sugar. I've even started to make my own--Dunkin Donuts was very bad for the wallet!

Here's my card for this week's challenge:
I love this layout and will probably use it in the future. Except for the buttons it's all Stampin Up supplies, and I even cleaned up some scraps to make it. My favorite part is the flower--I stamped it four times, once on the base, twice on So saffron and once on Chocolate Chip. Piecing the paper together once I snipped it out gave some great dimension. I'm looking forward to more coffee breaks to come!


paper: Old Olive DSP, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White, Very Vanilla
ink: Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip
stamps: Sweet Serendipity, Give Thanks
other: So Saffron ribbon, blender pen, Word Window punch, buttons, mini glue dots


  1. Great colors. I like how you punched out the "laugh" on a different color to make it stand out.

  2. I agree with Susan, the colors are great. I can imagine that the flower is very pretty IRL with all of that dimension you added. Well done!

  3. I love that you paper pieced the flower petals and the LAUGHTER!! It really provides great emphasis and I have not seen that sentiment used that way before! Fun card! :>

  4. Very cute! You just made me realize I didn't do this sketch this week!! Uh oh! I love this image too and you did a great job with it!
