Stampin' Sisters in Christ #1

SSCC – Challenge #1

Our host for this first challenge is Lisa Hjulberg and the scripture she chose is from the book of John:
Then Jesus declared,
"I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty." John 6:35 (NIV)

Create a card that has some sort of food or drink theme. It does not have to be a religious card, although please feel free to do so.

I love the Whiff of Joy stamps that my daughter, Kim shares with me. I decided to color Willow sipping hot chocolate, coffee, or chai (love all three, I will let you decide) with my copics and SU markers. Using my cuttlebug and daisy patch spellbinder edgeabilities I embossed the designer paper and sanded it to bring out the daisy design. I added ribbon, lace, prima flowers, rain dots, rhinestones and a special friendship heart charm.
Willow and her pillow (nice rhyme, hee hee) are both popped up on the card.

A close up of Willow with her Hot Chocolate:
The inside is finished using curved rectangular nesties. Daisy border die cut highlighted with smooch pearlized ink.
Stamps: Willow with Hot Chocolate by Whiff of Joy
Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Copics, SU Markers, Smooch
Papers: DCWV, SU
: Spellbinders nesties and edgeabilities, Fiskars border punch, and corner punch
Embellishments: Flowers, ribbon, lace, gems, and charm from my stash.
