Another Peachy Peek - and Mojo Monday and Color Throwdown Challenges

I've got one last sneak peek before the new release tonight over on the Peachy Keen Connection! I used the new April Kit of the Month for this one - and am also entering it in a couple of challenges.
I used this week's sketch from Mojo Monday:

And the colors inspiration came from this weeks Color Throwdown:

Once again - there are some of the CUTEST images this month! Can't wait for you to see the whole release tomorrow! For this card, I used a bunch of yummy Basic Grey Picadilly 6x6 paper. The blue from the color combo above isn't as obvious as I wanted, but you can see it in the green background paper. See it there?
I cut and embossed the circle with my Spellbinders Nestabilities. The border along the left side was cut with a Fiskars border punch. 
I paper-pieced the coffee cup, and added some Glossy Accents to the coffee in the cup, and on the eyes. 
I stamped the sentiment in 3 parts so that would stack, instead of be one long sentiment. The banner was handcut, and I wrapped some ribbon from my stash around it, then added a PTI button with some PTI button twine. 
Inked the edges of everything with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo, and pop-dotted the oval and banner from the card base. 
Make sure and stop by the Peachy Keen Connection tonight from 6:00 to 7:00 Central time for the release party! We will be chatting, there will be challenges, and I hear there are some prizes up for grabs! You can read the details HERE. Hope to see you there!!!
