Grab a Cup Challenge

Just a quick post today. I loved the inspiration photo at Flourishes Grab a Cup Challenge for this month's release. I didn't have any images that evoked the warm and cozy feel, but I loved the colours so went with those. The blues are a little off in the photos (no sun today)

It's hard to see but I added some touches of gold to the image with a Krylon gold leaf pen to tie in with the gold embossed sentiment.
