The Challenge #59

I love this sketch for the current The Challenge, it allowed me to create this fun coffee themed quick card.

I am not really a coffee drinker per say, I like the occasional latte but I love tea. Caffeine does not really give me a boost and a warm drink is more  of a comfort and cozy item for me. I do however have family and friends who place a very high value on morning coffee.

So back to The Challenge and the card. I stamped coffee stains along the side of the designer paper and then added the sentiment. Next I layered a coffee cup with DP and cardstock, the heart is clear heat embossed onto burgundy paper. I added a double ring die cut then popped the little cup up with foam tape.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper -Basic Grey, Verve - Better with You, SS die cut.

Don't forget to stop by Lesley's blog to play along with The Challenge and look at all the inspiration provided by the design team.
