DYSU Week #81 FOOD

Greetings DYSU friends!!  Today brings another challenge over at the DYSU challenge blog!  This week's  theme is Food!  Yep, that's right!  A super easy one!  We have some great sponsors this week, as always, and I'm using a simple and sweet image from Rhoda Design Studio. 
I printed my image twice.  Once onto vanilla cardstock and again onto patterned paper - SU! or PTI (I can't remember).  I then paper pieced some of my image after I did just a quick bit of shading to give the cup a bit more depth.
I created my background using a coffee ring stamp from Skipping Stone Designs.  I inked it with Versamark and heat set it with clear embossing powder.  I kept the overall look simple and clean so the cup and background would stand out.  I used my MFT Tab Die-namics to house the sentiment - also from SSD.  The mix and match flags are also from MFT - Fishtail Flag STAX.

Thanks for coming by today!!  I do hope you come join us at the DYSU Challenge Blog!!

Crafty Hugs!
