Coffee Card!

Happy Spring!  I finally bought a coffee-themed stamp from Stampendous last year to use for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hops so didn't want to miss the Spring Hop.  My layout was inspired by the Viva la Verve March Sketch 2.  I used some of the beautiful papers from the MME On Trend pad--perfect for a Spring card. I gold embossed the coffee stamp on a vellum circle & colored the cup & saucer on the back side with Distress Ink abandoned coral. Hard to see that I brushed Wink of Stella on the front side.
Pure Glitz Champagne glitter glue (one of my very old favorites) was used to "color" the letter F.  I was a lucky winner of some newly released Verve stamps & dies. Two of the flowers from the New Beginnings set were die cut.  The small one was cut twice, stamped & clear embossed.  I used a gold gel pen on one center & punched a light green circle from a scrap of the paper pad for the other one which I embellished with gold sticker dots. The larger flower was stamped in abandoned coral on another scrap from the pad, colored with the gold gel pen & die cut with a small circle.  I'm also entering CropStop, Dies R Us, The Playground, SSS Monday, Stamping Sensations & Uniko. Thanks so much for stopping by.
