Winner's Cup

The Paper Players is having a "cup" challenge.  It seems cups of cocoa and tea are the cup of choice for many.  There are even a few bra cups thrown in the challenge, which I thought was a really original idea.  So, I put on my thinking cap to come up with another version of a cup.  Glancing through my stamp sets, I came across this Winner's Cup, which had yet to see ink!  Perfect!

I incorporated the sketch from Skipping Stone Designs, replacing the tag with my winner's ribbon.

My ribbon is assembled with with shapes cut from the Cricut Artiste collection, which were then applied to coordinating chipboard shapes.  I love the added dimension that the chipboard gives to my cards.  Here is a short video from Close To My Heart, showing how all of the items coordinate together.

I left the inside of my card blank for a handwritten sentiment at a later date.

I have also entered my card in the Inspired by Challenge based on their Inspiration Photo.
