My Cup Runneth Over - Paper Cutz Challenge #58

Hi everyone!
  Great challenge at Paper Cutz this week - use a tag on your project.  Lots of freedom and I love the look of a good distressed tag on any project!  Here is a small A2 sized card I made just because I feel like this in my life right now!  I am so lucky to have a wonderful husband and two healthy and happy girls.  This quote has always been one of my favorites too so I entered it at the Frosted Design Challenge - and this cute Lilly Bean image from Tiddly Inks is a perfect match!  I inked everything here with Close to Cocoa from Stampin' Up. 

I colored Lilly Bean with my Copics and actually cut out the cup separately and paper pieced it on adhering the edges of the cup with adhesive and putting a large pop dot in the middle.  The cup bows out a bit which makes it look a bit more 3D.  I cut my tag on my expressions using my Gypsy.  The tag is from Celebrations and I placed a little tiny heart on the edge from Sweethearts.  Once I cut it out I placed it on the shadow cut. 

The little heart that was left over I used to ink the negative on the brown paper under Lilly.  Once that dried a bit I took my Stickles - cotton candy and stickled over the negatives.  I also added a bit of ribbon to my tag and adhered that.  Once I was finished I popped Lilly Bean off the page. 
Thanks for looking and please leave a comment I do so love them!!!
Enjoy!
