Crafty Hos Sketch Challenge!

I found some creative ladies who call themselves the Crafty Hos over on the Splitcoast Stampers gallery and message boards.  The Crafty Hos are hosting a sketch challenge.  I just got new drawers in my craft room (thanks hubby!) so I have had more incentive to be in there and creating!

Here's the sketch:

This is what I came up with for the sketch.

This is my first time using the Kraft cardstock (the brown base) to make a card.  I found some on sale the other day and it was just the sign I needed to give these goods a go!  I quilled the steam puff and dry embossed the cup (which is my own die-cut design).  I wanted the mug of hot goodness to be open to anything: coffee, tea, hot chocolate!  (I'm a fan of the latter two myself!)

Hope you like it.
