Challenge Entry: Love Ya a Latte!

I am getting ready for Valentines! Here's my first lovey-dovey card for 2012!

It is my first time trying to make a "window" card.  Quite tricky cutting the circle window from my Cricut Expression.  Yay for the "centerpoint" function.  :)

Okay, here it goes!


I paper pieced a stamped image from The Pixie Cottage Stamps Love you a Latte Stamp Set by Faith Skrdla.  It's the first time I am using this rubber stamp after winning it at The Pixie Cottage Challenge blog for their Challenge #65. I also tried out the technique (frame of hearts) they featured as a tutorial on their Saturday blog post. :)  I popped up the cinnamon sticks with foam tape to further add dimension to my image.


And here's the "window" shot.


I am entering my card to the following challenges.
1. The Pixie Cottage - Challenge #102 - Sketch

3. Fantabulous Cricut - #92 - Warming Up with Cocoa : Use a cup or chocolate or even the color brown on your project

It's me,
