Hot Chocolate for Four

I've managed four challenges with this card,  Quixotic Challenges  haveHot Chocolate as their theme, Simon Says is also Hot Chocolate, Crafty Calendar is keeping warm - what better than a mug of hot chocolate? and I followed the sketch at Create4Fun
and I'll just about scrape in in time for Simon Says and Quixotic Challenges.




I used the Hug in a Mug image from Funky Kits (love this one) and coloured her with distress inks. The papers are some my S-I-L gave me yonks ago and are of unknown origin. The base flowers are cut with Woodware Cherry Blossom punches and stamped with Basic Grey's flourish set, the leaves with Sizzix leaf and branch die and the flower centers are from stash. Ooh - nearly forgot - the borders of the strip are cut with the EK Success punch Parisian I think it's called.
