This week's technique challenge over on SCS was to combine 3 past challenges: a technique challenge, a color challenge, and a sketch challenge. I combined the 'Spotlighting' technique, Rose Red/Chocolate Chip, and Sketch Challenge 10. This card will be for my Grandma -- the coffee cup fit her too well! :)
I finally got the chance to try my Scor-Pal for the basket-weave embossing technique. I love the look, and it was so easy! I also used some DP from the Prints Pack (hostess). Grumpabella was stamped on Whisper White and colored with copics, then I 'spotlighted' her coffee cup by punching it out with the 1/2" punch and mounting it on a dimensional.

I also used Purely Pomegranate ribbon, white brads, and the tag corner punch. The baubles at the bottom corners of the cards are from my LSS, not sure what brand. The little sentiment on the front is from Papertrey.
