Coffee & Friends

I have had this wonderful MFT set for a while, and had not used it up to now. I thought it would be perfect for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch by Karen Giron. The base of the card is Soft Sky (SU retired) with a layer of Chocolate Chip then Afternoon Tea DSP (SU retired). I paper pieced the "Who's that Girl" image from MFT's Hot Stuff set and framed it in Wild Wasabi textured cardstock (SU retired). The sentiment is stamped on white with Chocolate Chip ink. I used the Color Spritzing Tool with Close to Cocoa and Creamy Caramel markers to give it a little dimension. I stamped the coffee beans on Afternoon Tea DSP (SU retired), cut them out and used them for corner embellishments. The cup images are stamped with black Stazon and colored with a combination of Copics and SU ink with blender pen. The top ric rac borders are cut with THIS Spellbinders Pierceabilities die. I added some pearls to the bottom and used Groovy Guava Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon to fininsh it off. I like it a latte!

Stephanie, this card is delightful! I really love how you tucked the ribbon behind your image panel too - very personal touch. Thanks so much for participating :)
