For my card today, I've used the Bugaboo Stamps image called Coffee Time - May Your Cup. Instead of using the sentiment that is included with the image, I used one of the hearts off the mug, enlarged, and added some glossy accents to it to make it shine. I also added glossy accents to the hearts on the mug and the one in the steam.
My image is colored in PSE, and I added some texture to the yellow band on the mug, trying to give it a similar appearance to the paper I used for the scallop border, which has been punched with my SU border punch. The papers I have used are from the So Sophie 6x6 paper pad by MMe. I just love the colors in this, and while they may be geared more for fall, I thought they were perfect for warming a friends heart with this coffee image. :)

Here's the current Stella sketch to follow. We'd love to have you play along with the challenge, and hope that this sketch provides you the inspiration you need!
