Tim Holtz Tropical Handmade Coffee Card


Hey y'all!  Greetings from South Carolina where the weather's warming and vacations are planning.  :)  I squeezed in one card for the Spring Summer Coffee Lover's Blog hop this round.  I would love to do more, but we have lots of fun stuff planned for the weekend...  I hope you do too!


I'm one of those people who will drink hot coffee when it's 100 degrees.  LOL!  I decided to use a dotty mug as a vase for the Tim Holtz Tropical flower dies.  The little pine sprig is from the Festive Greens set and the cup is the Tea Time Bigz die.  I die cut all of my foliage and then sponged it with Distress Inks for a vibrant, but shaded effect. 


I used the scalloped border die from the Stitched Ovals set to compliment the Authentique Utopia paper background and cup.  I finished with a Tutti Designs Hello die and a Chit Chat sticker, inspired by the song Hello Sunshine Hello Sky for the current SSS Monday challenge.  I've linked the song, it's so fun!  Certainly the feel I was going for with this card.  Happy hopping and hugs!  Autumn

What a wonderful summery feel to this card Autumn - sorry I have missed your other posts, but I have been 'grandie' sitting while their parents were away and had no time for the computer - it was exhausting!
