The Most Wonderful Time

Welcome back once again!  It's hard to believe that today is already the last day of the Winter Coffee Blog Hop, but it is.  I've had a lot of fun creating and sharing my cards, and I hope you've enjoyed seeing all the fabulous creations shared.  One thing is for sure...we all love our coffee!
This card was made using some patterned papers from Carta Bella called Cabin Fever.  I loved the journalling cards, the plaid prints, and the warm winter colors in this collection.  I used the papers and one of the journalling cards, and I stamped my sentiment on it with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink.  I machine stitched the card, inked the edges, and added some sequins.
The coffee cup was cut from ivory Bazzill, some of the Carta Bella patterned paper, and the lid is cut using Taylored Expressions Little Bits - Coffee To Go from Midnight Wool Felt from Taylored Expressions.  I also added the holly leaves and berries cut from wool felt and I glittered them.  Under that I tucked some Ivory Burlap String and Navy Burlap String.   Here's where I'm linking my card:
