Coffee Lovers Blog Hop #4

Hi, everyone!  I'm back again with another card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Are you hopping along?  I'm having fun with it!  This time I've made a vintage card with images I've collected over the past year or so. I sponged around the edges with distress ink to give a vintage look.

Here are the supplies used:
  • Designer paper:  MME
  • Digi images:  Girl and Dog Coffee Party (Free Pretty Things for You), Bingo card (Collage Candy), Coffee Cup and Coffee Grinder (Far Far Hill) - all were freebies, thank you!
  • Ribbon:  Brown (Offray), lace, rikrak, twine (stash, source unknown)
  • Dies:  Joycraft
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Hero Arts)
  • Ink:  Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy
  • Accents:  Button, charm (stash)
