Inkspiration - Inspiration Challenge #6

I looked at this challenge from Makeesha quite a few times, before I decided to give to a go. Quite a challenge; but a good one!! So here is what we had to work with.

I kept with the 'cup of soup' theme and used a new set Hand Drawn - Level 3 Hostess set. This set has the cutest little hand drawn cup, which I thought would be perfect for this card.
I've used Choc Chip for the base card and layered this with a peice of DP from the same set - Hand Drawn. Then I've added a strip of Choc Chip, to which I've added some wide choc chip ribbon and tied off with some twine.
For the main image, I've stamped the little cups by using the masking technique, added some colour and also glossed up the cups with Crystal Effects.
I've completed the card with paper piercing, brads and a rub-on 'thank you' sentiment from the same set.
So that's my creation for this inspiration challenge. Even though it took some time for me to think of an idea for a card, I'm glad I managed to get this one done. Thanks Keesh!
