Whimsical Wednesday Challenge

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to another Whimsical Wednesday.
Today's challenge is "Layer It"
Make a card or project with a winter or Christmas theme and it must have layers.

For my card today I colored Cindy's adorable digi stamp, "Sweet Hot Coco". You can purchase it HERE. I paper pieced the polka dot paper on to the cup and added glossy accents to give it the feeling of a real mug. The holly berries were also done twice and popped on foam tape. For the background paper I punched out strips from Martha Stewart's "Double Loop Weave" punch and layered them on red cardstock. To finish it off I used Stickles and my gel pen.
To see what the other wonderful DT ladies have created for this challenge please swing by the Whimsical Designs Blog.
