Just wanted to espresso my thanks - Day 1

Friday May 25, 2018
 
It's that time on year again..
This is day 1
This is my card.. First off yesterday I got my awesome Simon Says monthly kit and it has a detailed embossing folder in it among other goodies. I had to try the folder so I just grabbed a scrap of paper and embossed it.. WELL it's so beautiful I had to use that embossed scrap. So I added this to a bright pink card base. Then I stamped some flowers from Simon Says with SS ink on a scrap of paper trying to place them in the right place as I kept lifting up the unstamped coffee cup. Once I was satisfied with the placement I stamped the coffee cup by Reverse Confetti and then stamped the coffee inside the cup with Ranger ink I then went over the coffee with Spectrum Noir sparkle pen. I fussy cut the cup out then using copics added some other colors to the cup ring and handle. I added some Nuvo drops to the flower centers. I didn't like it just sitting on the card so I adhered some Martha Stewart punched leaves under it so it had a base. I stamped the sentiment also from Reverse Confetti.   I tell you this embossing folder is unbelievable. I hope the computer gives it justice.. I hope you play along with this week long hop. 

Challenges:
As you like it - flora or fauna (for my card I liked the flora, it makes the card more feminine and so many colors can be used. Love nature
The house that stamps built M2318 - anything goes
Everybody art #426 - for friends only
