Brimming Coffee Cup

Yesterday I said I would retake the picture of this card made with the cute digital stamps from Daydream Designs. So here is the full card.

Now I have to put in a disclaimer here. After work today I had an appointment at the eye doctor and my eyes were dilated. Well, everything is still kind of blurry and the words on the card look blurry but not sure if it was the photographer (with the dilated eyes) or me looking at it now. Oh well....

Working with digital images is fun because you can print out the images any size you want. I made the coffee cup, from "Perfect Blend" rather big and used some Stickles to give it some dimension. I played around with the brown panel trying to figure out what look I wanted - finally ran some twine up and down. I added a bow and some brads. Love that sentiment from "Coffee with Friends".

Thanks for coming back! 

I entered this card in the following challenges:
Anything Goes Challenge -  Make your own background

Very cute card! I really like the chocolate brown background and the cream die cuts you have on top of it. The twine that is striped on the brown is really a nice touch of interest on the background. Love the coffee cup, too! Cute sentiment! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
