March 15: Paper Sweeties March 2017 New Release Party!

Hello there!
Back again for Day 2 of the Paper Sweeties March Release!

The new release will be available for purchase today!

I LOVE the sentiment I am using today...I think it is so true!!! I have had some of the best conversations with family and friends over a cup of coffee!
I randomly stamped the background cradstock with the coffee pot, mug, and donuts with lack ink from Memento. I colored them using Copic Markers in shades E40, RV00, YG03, E33, and E59. I colored the entire background using BG000.
I emphasized the polka dots and added icing to some donuts with a white gel pen. I added some faux stitches to the perimeter using a scor-bug. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum. For some finishing touches I added patternpaper from My Mind's Eye, a doily, twine and a utton from Michaels. I LOVE this new relases...YOU WILL TOO!!!!
