Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge. This week's sponsor is Stamp and Create online stamp store and I've chosen a sweet House Mouse stamp by Stampendous from their store for my card called Warm Cup.

I started with a base of Recollections paper that I cut to size with my Sizzix "Movers and Shapers" Die to get that sweet little stitched punch out on the front of the card and on the decorative paper that I layered on top. 

Then I die cut the My Favorite Things "Coffee Cup" die with white paper for the lid, patterned paper from my stash for the cup and Hobby Lobby Corrugate Paper for the sleeve and inked the edges of the cup and sleeve with "Vintage Photo" Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Then there's the star of the card, "Warm Cup" which I colored with Copic Markers, cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

Colored with Copics
Nose: R30
Cheeks and Center of Ears: R20
Mouse: E31, E35, E57
Cup: B12, B24, B37
Coffee: E79

Finally, I punched out some flowers with my Stampin' Up! punch and added some pearls to the center. I also used the hearts that came with the Coffee Cup die set, covered them in Wink of Stella, added them to the cups and stamped a sentiment on the inside from the Stampin' Up! "Afterthoughts" set.

Now on to the Challenge details:
