Paper Sweeties Challenge - March 2017 Anything Goes!

Hello Friends!  It's the 1st of March and time for a new challenge at Paper Sweeties!


I love the inspiration graphic this month and was inspired by the pink tulips, the pretty basket and the chalkboard sign too!  I love this palette and may make more cards using it but remember that the challenge is always "Anything Goes" !  We just love to see what you are making! 

You may notice that the coffee mug on my card is NEW!  So is that wonderful sentiment: "Happiness is a cup of coffee shared with a friend"!   That is because I am sharing some "Sneak Peeks" at some of our NEW MARCH RELEASE products!  There are FOUR brand new sets coming your way in March all with a HOT beverage theme!  So exciting!  You will learn more about these sets during our Paper Sweeties March Release Countdown Activities:

March 13th:  Planner Blog Hop
March 14th:  March Release Sneak Peeks Blog Hop
March 15th:  March Release Party Blog Hop
March 16th:  March Release Rewind

Now onto today's card:

I decided to use the lovely NEW sentiment as the "steam" coming up from my hot cup of coffee.  I added some white ink at the base of my cup so that it looks like the cup is sitting on a tablecloth. A very simple and clean card with just a touch of sparkle added with 3 adorable flower shaped "frosting" sequins from the Paper Sweeties store!

 Thanks so much for visiting me today.  Here are links to all of the designers participating in today's Paper Sweeties Challenge Blog Hop:
