Even More Pink

I may be hitting the pink wall.  Nah...I got a million pink cards in me.  But can you stand it?  This one is for the Cat's Pajamas.  This week the challenge is a photo inspiration.    The photo is of a lovely pink and white striped mug.  I picked this stamp of PJ serving up a piping hot drink to play up the mug aspect but instead of coloring the mug with stripes I opted to use a soft green for the mug and picked up the stripes with the Stampin' Up "Pink Pirouette" dp on the card base.  PJ's apron is pieced with a co-ordinating dp from the package which was also used for the square elements behind the image.  
The soft green looks so sweet with the pink, so I pulled a pastel green out of my stash (lord knows how I ever found it, and of course I already forgot where I put it away), and I pulled some green and white twine to tie the charm (I do know where my twine and charms are, I do love my charms and I love how they look tied with that twine).  I also used a variegated Sulky green thread to sew the dp to the card stock.  
So here's the deets:
Stamp - the Cat's Pajamas "A Cuppa"
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black for the image; Ranger Weathered  Wood sponged around the edge of the image
Paper - Georgia Pacific cs for the image; Warsau cs for the base and mats; Stampin' Up "Pink Pirouette" dp
Miscellaneous - copics; Heidi Swapp bling; clip; ribbon; the Cat's Pajamas twine; love charm; inverted scalloped nestibilities
