Rose Blooms and Coffee

Hi, everybody! The 2020 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is happening right now! I always enjoy this hop so I got busy and made a few coffee-themed cards; this is the first. Check out the link for details on how you can join the fun, as well as the awesome list of sponsors!  My card features an image from STAMPlorations, one of the generous Super Sponsors of the hop (thank you, Shery!).


This gorgeous image is STAMPlorations Rose Blooms and Coffee, and it was a freebie at one point; there is a new freebie now (thank you, Shery!).  I coloured the image with markers and fussy-cut so I could pop it up on foam tape.  I die-cut some patterned paper to make a background according to the sketch below.  For the sentiment, I used STAMPlorations Just Thank You Clear Sticker on a stitched banner die-cut (I received a sample of these stickers in my recent order - thank you, Shery!). To finish the card, I punched two butterflies and added some red gems.

This is so pretty and a great interpretation of the sketch. I am always hesitant to use patterned paper with words but it works perfectly here.
