Strong Coffee

Hi friends! It's Monday again, and that means it's time to start your week off with a new Mojo Monday sketch.  This one is an easy sketch that's perfect for quick cards and a large sentiment.


It's the start of Spring Break here at our house and so I'll be needing as much strong coffee as possible to keep up with the Energizer Bunnies running around our house!  So for my next card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop I chose to use the coffee blessing from the limited time Rise and Shine free digital set I designed for Verve.

I printed the PDF version of the digi on my laser printer, trimmed the sentiment down and added a few Copic highlights.  Next I colored the little flower mug, hand cut it and popped up on top.  I layered some pretty papers, using white mats and thought everything looked a little more fesitve with the two panels skewed.  I finished off with some white ribbon in a double bow and some adhesive pearls for the steam.


I hope you'll play along with the sketch.  For more inspiration with our sketch, please hop on over to the Mojo Monday blog to see what the other designers are sharing. And if you use our digital set, be sure to link up over on the Verve blog as well as on the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop for a couple of chances to win some prizes.
