You brighten my day

Thursday September 21, 2017
 
Wow this is day 7 of the Fall Coffee Lovers blog hop..
It's been fun creating my cards. Few I have loved and few not so much.. Maybe I hadn't had enough coffee that day when I created.. Any how this is another day and another card.
 
 This is my card. I took some dark gray card stock and dry embossed it. I then took some tanish card stock and my Stampin up stamps and dies and cut out the to go coffee cup and lid. I used Ranger inks to give some shading.
I found this awesome scrap dotted card stock so cut it out to fit as the cozy. I used Simon Says sentiment that has nothing to do with coffee but for my card it does. I added some of those left over Simons Says leaves I painted with Mission paints and touched up with Ranger. It needed something more so added the twine and more leaves. I won some gray bling dots from Close to my heart.. Aren't they pretty? and added them to the card.
