Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Drink Card using Papertrey Ink's Brew to Go Die Set

Food and/or drink is the theme for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  I've often thought how nice it could be if inspiration was like Cheetos or hot chocolate - just pop some delicious snack or drink into your mouth and be rewarded with artsy ideas; a muse in food form.  But alas, I've learned that Cheetos and crafting don't really mix (unless orange finger-dust enhances the look of the project) and hot chocolate, while divine, doesn't give me crafty lightning bolts.  But I made this card anyway in the hopes that someday there may be some magical creativity elixir.

I don't have any process pics this time...mainly because I changed directions eighty-five times and re-did each part more times than I care to admit.  I cut out the drink using Papertrey Ink's Brew to Go die set, then painted it with Gouache.  I used dotted washi tape for the label and typed "Creative Geniusness" on a typewriter.  The background is a piece of patterned paper from Vicky Boutin's Color Study collection. 

Here is the official list of supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
