Penny Black: What's In Your Cup?

I am totally loving these new to me Penny Black dies called "What's in Your Cup" and "Warmest Wishes".  The cup is so easy to cut out and embellish.  I also recycled some paper that was on the back of a Christmas card our neighbors gave us; it's the brown paper above with white branches on it.  I scanned it into my computer so I could use it over and over again. 

These cards will be the cards I send to my family members next Christmas.  When my family mentions the cards I made, I'll know they were talking about these Penny Black cup cards.  Normally I only make one of each card, but then when family starts talking about the cards I sent, I can never remember which card I sent to who (or whom).  I got the idea of putting the green sprigs on the card from Bonnie Klass's card.

I used the following products on the cards:

Penny Black What's in Your Cup
Penny Black Warmest Wishes
Dee's Distinctively Candy Cane
Cheery Lynn Christmas Bells (green sprig)
Martha Stewart edge punches:  Pinking Scallop, Doily Lace and Aspen Snowflake
Martha Stewart Arctic Snowflake punch
Poppy Stamps Simple Snowflakes
Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles

and Word Art Wednesday challenge and
Crop Stop's December Challenge (I used distress inks to color the mugs, Tombow adhesive, Martha Stewart punches, and scor tape)

(this is the first one I made; I need to add some whipped topping to it)
