Where to drink cocoa?

As part of the Designed2Delight Artistic Team, I was given this digi to use. I started out coloring the cup blue, to make a blue and white cup, then decided that it would be too much white unless I colored the background, and I didn't want to do that with Mark-its, so I added green for a somewhat Fiestaware-looking cup. I then started looking for some blue and green paper and stuff to pull it together, and ended up with this:



I showed it to my daughter, who announced that she didn't like it; it was too busy, and the elements didn't go with the image. ??? She told me to look at the cup - where would I see that cup? I thought for a minute. Starbucks? Panera? A ski lodge? It was that last idea that inspired this second try (same image, moved to a different card)


It is better, I think, but when I showed it to my daughter, she told me I should start all over and color the cup a different color. Maybe, but not tonight!

Juliet, that sounds like something my daughter would say and she's 8. She makes suggestions for me all the time. :) I really like the first one! And I love the shape of the second card!! Your coloring of the cup is beautiful!
