Caffeine Trip

Hi everyone! It's Monday, but that's ok because it's going to be a short week for me! We have Friday off, so I'm looking forward to a short week.

The Saturday Spotlight blog has a challenge going on to create something with coffee in mind. They even provided this picture as inspiration.I just got a coffee-themed set from Paper Makeup Stamps called Caffeine Trip, so I thought I'd play. Crazy 4 Challenges has a nice sketch challenge this week (love them!), so I thought I'd use that as well.So I combined the two challenges and came up with this.I wanted to use the blue and brown from the inspiration picture, so I went with Basic Grey's Marrakech dp. I pulled the colors out of the print to color the coffee cup. The steam is popped up for more dimension. The sentiment is from the same set.

Pretty simple card, but I'm very happy with it (probably because it was so simple to make)! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

What an eye opener that Marrakesh paper is, Lisa, (who needs the coffee for that job?!!) I love it's vibrant hues and your cool spellbinders shape that you worked your image in. May have been easy, but it looks AWESOME.
