Coffee :)

Good morning 🙂  Today marks the start of a new ATG Challenge at Creative Fingers.  Our sponsor is the one and only Bugaboo Stamps!

For my card, I used the Coffee Word Art image. After printing it out on some tan CS, I cut it out, then adhered it to a coffee bean print DP.  The other side of the coffee bean print was a coffee word print, so I used that as my background.  Everything was matted with black CS, and I added a tag with a cute coffee sentiment stamped on it (can’t remember the maker of this particular set).  A few adhesive embellishments in the corners provided a bit of balance to the card design.

 I’d like to enter the following with this:

Good morning 🙂  It’s the first day of fall here, and also the first day of a new ATG challenge at Creative Fingers. We have the fabulous Lemon Shortbread as a sponsor this time 🙂

There are so many adorable images in the shop, but I decided to go seasonal, and use an image that I’d won a while back, called Hedgehog Leaves. I colored this cutie up with my SN and Copic markers.  I forgot how much fun fall leaves are to color!!  After cutting the image out, I began assembling the card, following this sketch, from Creative Sketchy Girls:

What a fabulous sketch, with so many possibilities!!  My leaf print background paper is a scrap that I’ve had for a very long time, and was just the right size for this card, I dug in the scrap bin for a dark brown piece, and inked the edges with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  A small piece of burlap finished off the layers.  I cut the “thanks” with an unbranded die, from another scrap of brown paper.  A few leaf brads were added, just because they looked good, and were feeling neglected lol.

I’d also like to enter this into the following challenges:
