Perk Up!

The weekend is here and it’s time for a new color duo over at Dynamic Duos!  This week, you get to choose one of the colors!
SU stamps used:  A Fitting Occasion, Morning Cup (sentiment)

I think Crumb Cake is one of my favorite neutrals.  Right up there with Kraft!  I decided to pair it with Real Red.  I had some of the new Stampin’Up! decorative paper on hand, so used that for my background.  I used my Nestabilities to cut the circle and scalloped circle, adhering the Curly Label shape with the coffee cup image to the center.  I popped up the layered piece with some foam dots.  The red buttons were some I had stashed away in my red bin.  I used my white gel pen to create some faux stitching along the edges, rounded the corners and called it good!

Be sure and visit the rest of the design team’s blogs as they have provided some wonderful inspiration!

I am also entering this card into the current sketch challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
