A Cup of Kindness

Here I am once again sharing a card I created using Paper Sweeties new You Warm My Heart stamp set.  The sentiment (Friendship Begins With a Cup of Kindness) is from this lovely new set, as well as the little tea cup that I stamped and cut with the coordinating You Warm My Heart Sweet Cuts.  I also wrapped some yummy Oatmeal Seam Binding around my card and tied a nice big double bow with it.  I topped that with some Wild Orchid Crafts Open End Roses in both Coral and Ivory With Pale Pink and I also included a Wild Orchid Crafts Green Leaf and a Two-Toned White Leaf.
I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Hickory Smoke (all edges) and Black Soot (sentiment).  The patterned papers and journalling card are from Echo Park's sweet This & That Collection.  I always LOVE picking out and buying new patterned paper collections, and I've been having fun with these new goodies I recently purchased. are the challenges where I'm linking up my Cup of Kindness card.  I love playing along in challenges; and although I don't often win, it's still a lot of fun to join in the fun and to connect with new blog friends.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your visits and comments.
