Rule the World

Hi!  Today's card uses the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch and made for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I'm not sure that it's very Spring-like, but I'll use the excuse that it's coming into autumn where I live, so it's hard to feel Spring-y ;)


I'm really not sure about this card, but I'm putting it out there anyway.  I stamped the images using Verve sets Better With You and Coffee.  I stamped the coffee cups onto Desert Storm cardstock as well as white and paper-pieced them together.  The pink polka dots are my nod to Spring and were stamped using one of the images from Geometric Style onto a scrap and then I over-stamped with the coffee cup and cut out the band.  The two bands are liberally painted with clear Wink of Stella.


Thanks for visiting!
