Another Triple Play Card

Hello everyone! My card today meets 3 different challenges. I've combined the Crazy4Cocoa challenge #41 to use the color blue on your card, along with the Shopping our Stash #43 challenge to use food or beverage related items, and it's also for the Tuesday Throwdown #89 which is to "Clip it Up" or use a clip. It isn't often that I'm able to combine more than 2 challenges into one card, so I'm always a happy stamper when I can accomplish that!
I'm using a SNSS digital image called Cocoa's Latte and I colored the image with Copics, adding a little paper-piecing to the center of the cup. The sentiment is from a SNSS clear set called Cup of Cocoa and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I embossed the turquoise panel with a Sizzix diamonds ef, and added some SU! early espresso ribbon. I added some tiny Geo Sparklers stickers to the beverage container that I've had in my stash for years! The dsp is by BG from the kraft pad.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you're enjoying some lovely early spring weather wherever you are!!
