Well I am back again with my 8th card for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I made this card this evening after working and thinking about what I was going to make all day. I do not always like all my cards (I am my own worse critic) but I am happy with this one.
I saw a new challenge today at Tuesday Throwdown to use a creative border. I thought on it awhile and decided to make my own border with the negative space after I die cut the word "coffee" from along the bottom od my yellow cardstock. I then backed it up with navy blue cardstock so the border would really pop.
I used this sketch from Newton's Nook and I am entering this card in their Inky Paws Challenge #49:
I used a sweet little stamp that I won in a previous Coffee Lovers Bloghop from Stamplorations called Coffee For All Seasons. I embellished one of the coffee cups with a sweet little hibiscus puffy sticker to make it that much more summery. I am entering this card in the Stamplorations Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge
