I am joining in as part of the Oddball Design Team.

Here is my card:

I used the image #154 Monday Mornings Frazzled Fran needs her coffee

I printed the image a couple of times, cutting them out and paper piecing

 (with paper from a paper pad from The Works - Sweet Moments)
 to form the coffee cup fold out card. 

This is the front:

I added two pieces of cream card above the cup on the front - distressed around the edges with tea dye distress ink. I wanted this to look like cream with sprinkles (these were made with Dovecraft pink 3D pearl effects.) The second piece is on foam pads.

I had printed the sentiment on the DP and added this on a piece of cream paper, alos on foam pads.

Inside the card, the cup is paper pieced and Fran is coloured with Copics.
This sentiment was printed on the paper too, and added to the cup.

Happy Hopping!
