Mmmmm, what a cosy scene! Those lovely fall colours made me think of a comforting cup of tea so I reached for the wonderful One Cup stamp set for my clean and simple card today. The sentiment is stamped on a Rounded Rectangle and I've used the Banner Bundle to cut the flag. The Cuppa Tea dies are out of stock right now, but add them to your wishlist to grab later, they are so sweet! I finished the card with some white gel pen faux stitching - it's probably been years since I've added that detail, still love it! 

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!
