I'd Like To Espresso My Thanks

My card today was created for the Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop using a digital freebie from Verve Stamps. I started with a panel of cherry cobbler cardstock from Stampin' UP and cut some strips of patterned paper from the Authentique Pride 6x6 paper pad. I cut the strips into a starburst pattern and layered them onto my cardstock starting from a center point. I adhered the panel down to my white card base and added some faux stitched lines all around. I die cut the sentiment from the digital freebie out using a pierced oval die from My Favorite Things and added some faux lines around the edge for a cohesive look. I colored the coffee cups using Copic markers in colors to match the papers, fussy cut them out, and edged them with a Memento dual tip marker for a nice, clean die cut look and popped them and the sentiment panel up using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I plan on giving this card to a good friend of mine who always buys her cards from me. This will be my little "thank you" to her. I hope you like it!

Hello, Celeste! I think I saw you at Children's this morning, in the elevator. I was trying to remember your first name and what came out of my mouth is 'Cecille." What's so funny is I can remember your last name. Then I remembered your name as soon as you stepped out of the elevater (if that was you.)...
