Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Hi there! Happy FRIDAY!!! I'm off work today to take my final exam for my FINAL CLASS!! WOOHOO!! Finally going to finish this BS degree and never take another class in my life, I'm too old for this crap, ha!! Before I take my final, I had to get some crafting done and there is no better way than to participate in this week's Spring Coffee Lover's Blog HOp!!! 
SpringCoffeeLoversBH-01
I had so so so much fun on this card! It was purely a "for fun" card, and even though ALL my cards are fun, it's fun to create something where you can mix and match goodies from all different manufacturer's and I'm just amazed at how well everything can go together:)


The patterned papers are from Maggie Holmes Confetti Collection, as is the little polka dot and burlap heart! I started by working all my layers around and finding a layout I wanted. I hadn't orginally planned on it be so many layers, but once I started I couldn't stop, ha! I used some of the DELICOUS new Cracked Pistachio Distress ink and watercolored a bit of a background to peek out from behind the layers, I love the softness it created on a pretty layered card. The coral piece is Persimmon from MFT, the mint color is from SSS. The coffee dies are from MFT, the Hello die from Avery Elle, and the "coffee" word stamp from Verve's set, aptly named "Coffee"! I used a PPP border die for the mint cardstock, and the sequins are also from Verve!

Hope you have some time today to hop around to all the lovely blogs today! Thanks so much for stopping by today:)
