Happy Birthday Coffee

We have some happy "spring like" colours for you over at Sunday Stamps today…Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzaz, Crumb Cake and Whisper White.
For today's card, I masked the coffee cups - although once I was looking at the photograph I realized that some of my paper piecing doesn't match my masking - which just proves you shouldn't always craft with a head cold…..
I also did some literal masking on the letters for each cup.  I took the "Happy" from the Countless Sayings 2 Photopolymer set.  I taped off the letters that I didn't want in order to put a single letter on each cup.  Once they were stamped I highlighted them by colouring them in with marker.
Finally, I stamped the "Birthday" onto our Natural Trim - since this word was also from the Countless Sayings set (so it was a photopolymer piece), I was able to see the ribbon easily and where I was stamping.

I hope you join us this week for this challenge.  Link your creation back to the Sunday Stamps challenge blog.  We love to see your projects!

Have a fabulous Sunday.
Thanks for dropping by,
Joan
