Today's set is filled with some fun builder sentiments that also work well with other sets in this release. Here I paired the a really good book sentiment with the and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. sentiment from the Fill My Cup set we'll be spotlighting tomorrow.

Next I stamped the starry straw cup in early espresso and colored with Copic markers, cutting with the coordinating die.  I highlighted with some glossy accents and glitter for extra sparkle.  Next I die cut the happiness word die in soft sky and early espresso cardstock and layered together down the side of my sentiment, to give the appearance of a book spine.  The background was a super quick stenciling with spiced marmalade, scattered straw and tumbled glass distress inks.
