Beautiful Card Concept 56

Hi friends! It's time for a new Card Concept challenge, and the new graphic totally pulled at my coffee loving heartstrings.  When I saw the spoon and cup, I just had to pull out the Coffee set and get right to work making a shabby little creation.

I had these flowers from the Beautiful Things set all stamped and colored with prismacolors and cut with the coordinating Beautiful Flowers Die Set left over from the release cards I made last week. It seemed so perfect that they were already done in pink, just like the bloom in the graphic.  So I went for a similar look by embossing the cup and spoon images from Coffee in white on crumb cake and then coloring with colored pencils.  I hand cut the spoon and cut the coffee cup with the coordinating Cuppa Joe Die Set.

I did a bit of distressing with sandpaper and watered down gesso on the designer papers, then masked off the you from one of the sentiments and embossed it on a vellum Stitched Pennants die cut.  I then colored some crumb cake paper with the same color of pencils I used for the teacup and cut the beautiful word out.  The oval picture frame in the graphic had me digging through the closet to find my oval nestabilities and it became the perfect little grounding point for my collage of die cuts.  I finished off with a bit of twine and some crumb cake leaves.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you have a second, be sure to hop on over to The Card Concept to see all the wonderful inspirations by the design team.
