For my card, I took a piece of yellow cardstock that already had a distressed look to it. I stamped the coffee rings on the the paper. I used an old flourish stamp that I've had for years to make the steam. My cup was cut out and colored and I shaped it to be 3-d. I felt it needed something for embellishments. I took burlap and lace, pearls, buttons and raffia to add a lot of texture to my card. 


Check out what the other design team member made:
