Warm Winter Wishes

It has been raining here yesterday quite heavily. I was driving on the highway and I couldn's see ahead. But today the sun shines again :) , but it's cold outsid. We had a lot of traveling this week, so I prefered to stay at home today, put everything in place after this week of vacation, and naturally - some crafting...
And for this cold wheater we have here (relatively... I know some of you are really freezing now...), I made this warm winter wishes card. I've added some blue & gold glitter powder to the cream cs, colored cappuccino Pippin from digital delights (freebie) with wattercolor pencils, and the cup with glitter blue & gold pens and put some white stickles for the cream on top of the cup to get some 3-D efect.
I printed the sentiment, drew the faux stitches with white pen, and put some gold stickles on the scalloped blue circle and on the "w" of the sentiment (it was a perfect swirls for that!). an organza ribbon (the bow is faux, it's much easier that way...)
Isn't Pippin so so cute?
and it goes for these challenges:
