All The Goodness Of Life

Hello everyone, this is for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I have been wanting to give it a try since she brought it back a couple of weeks ago. I used my new Verve sets for this one, luv the coffee set, great sentiments come with this one. I used Verve Bountiful Background too, I really luv these background stamps, that add so much to a card. You can create you own dp with these stamps. I added stitching to the center and pearls on the scallops. There is also glitter on the darker brown stripes of the cup, I am not sure if you can tell, it looks really pretty IRL. I also heat embossed the steam and the coffee, so they are both a little shiny. I added a Memory Makers brad to the button to snaze it up a bit, too. Enjoy your evening!
Paper: Prism Birchtone Light, Burned, and Desert Coral Dark
Ink: Versmagic and SU Really Rust
Accessories: Kaiser Craft Pearls, Janome, Button, Memory Makers Brad, Heat Embossing Tool, SU Scalloped Border Punch, Glitter Pen, and Glue Dots
