Merry Monday Challenge #263!

Have you ever created a project using an inspiration photo? That's what we are all doing this week for our Merry Monday Challenge brought to you by our hostess Lori! There's so much to pick from when using an inspiration photo. You can use the colors, the theme or a certain item in the photo. For my card, I opted to use the colors, the wall and the coffee theme:

Of course I included a coffee cup full of Christmas cheer and I like how the branches and leaves peeking out from behind the cup look all layered together:

I also added some dry embossing in the background to resemble the wall in the inspiration photo using the Ruffled Embossing Folder:

Thanks for stopping by today and make sure you visit Merry Monday Challenge and play along with us this week.
