VLVDec2013 wk1 and Diva Dare using Holiday Treats

Here is my take on the VLVDec2013 week1 sketch designed by Amber Hight and using some new stamp sets by Verve which I love. This one is called Holiday Treats and it's on sale today so even better time to get one. In addition, another chance to play in the Dec Diva Dare challenge of creating a card using a favorite Verve stamp set.

Here is my card:
Love this retired paper Elegant Soiree by SU and thought it would be perfect for this "Thank you" card. Also, used some of my favorite ink color as well by SU: Soft Suede for the sentiment, Chocolate Chip for the card stock, and Early Espresso for the coffee mugs.

Colored in the coffee mugs using my Spectrum Noir markers, CT2 and IB1 and added some crystal effects and some dazzling details for the very top of it. Last but not least I used Verve seam binding ribbon from the Signature Ribbon collection and added a nice big pearl to finish it off. Almost forgot, the arrow image comes from the stamp set: Brighter Days.
