Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop - Love Affair w/Coffee {Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps}

Hello friends!
I'm back with another card to share with you

This card is a tribute to my love affair with coffee 

I pulled out my mini distress ink pads and started
sponging the base panel.  I mixed and matched two
oranges, a peach and a red to get this blend of bright
yet warm colors (that's how I feel about coffee a bright
and warm start to my day - hehehe).  Then I embossed
the sentiment and go cups.  I left the space around the
sentiment a little wet and when poured the embossing powder
on the panel it smudged.  At first I was horrified that I had
ruined it and then I decided that I loved it because it looks
like coffee grounds.  What's that saying "a happy accident"
or something like that  :o).  I then added a few of the coffee 
beans around the panel and as a last touch decided to 
splash a few drops of water on there for a bit more 
effect.  I'm really happy with how it turned out and 
it was fun to get inky with this one.  

The stamps are all from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
Sentiment: "Love Story Sentiments"
Coffee cups and beans: "One Cup at A Time
