Playing Along in Challenges!

Hi friends!
My work day on Friday was super stressful, goosh... But luckily I had some hours of free time in the afternoon and I crafted for relaxation to take my mind out of "real life" for a moment. :)  I had already checked out some challenges on Thursday evening so this card came together in a heartbeat, so satisfying when that happens! Here's the card that I made:


I've used stamps and co-ordinating dies by Hero Arts (NBUS), foliage dies by W+9, a magazine freebie bow-die, a SSS snowbank die (not as a snowbank this time!) + quick Copic coloring and Stickles for the cream topping on the coffee cup. The white heat embossed sentiment is made with Hero Arts embossing powder (NBUS) that all the superstars of blogland seem to use and after now trying it for the first time I see where they are coming from! What a fantastic product!

...Oh and the work day ended well so I think crafting helped! :)

I'd like to enter this card to:

(my 3rd entry already... Playing a lot with new goodies lately! If you don't know Darnell -probably impossible!- or her challenges, do check out the link and be inspired!)

Cupcake icing made me think of the whipped cream topping of this coffee mug!
