My PSL passion...

Is so known to my family and friends that I received two Starbucks travel mugs for my birthday that were exactly the same.
Luckily my friend said I could take hers back and get a gift card enjoy more PSL!

She was so gracious that I decided I should make her a special thank you card...
I had to make her a cup card (ironically she used to be a barista!)
The base card is from a paper pack that had the greatest pumpkins.
I added some kraft paper that already had embossed lines on it.
The cup is from Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations "Fresh Brewed" mostly cut from white card stock but edged with a sponge and Distress ink "vintage photo".
The sleeve is cut from the same die using a pumpkin colored card stock.
The emblem, cut from the same die on white card stock and edged in the same way as the cup, I stamped the pumpkin using Taylored expressions "Peek-a-Boo Pumpkins" and Distress markers "rusty hinge" and "peeled paint".
Once that dried I found my verse in my Taylored Expressions set "Let's Talk Sentiments" and stamped it over the pumpkin using Distress ink "vintage photo".

I got this one done for the  Paper Players challenge just under the wire!!!

Love that pumpkin background - really evokes the spiced pumpkin latte from a famous coffee shop! Great take on the sketch.
So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week
