Piecing In Color

     I decided to paper piece on my sample for this week's CAS challenge which is a color challenge: Smoky Slate, Midnight Muse, Melon Mambo and white.  I used a new set that I knew I was going to love-SU's Perfect Blend.  I had the circle lying on my desk so I stamped my coffee cup and sentiment on that. I stamped again on my strip of dp then cut out the sleeve and adhered it to the cup.  I had envisioned a flourish of grey steam, but when I stamped it, it just didn't look right to me because the cup had a lid on it. I ended up adding a row of grey scallops to my strip and then popped the circle panel over that.
