Muse Card Challenge #135 & Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hello again ~
A really quick post to share a card I created for the Muse Card Challenge and the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop. Tracey McNeely provided inspiration this week at Muse with her fabulous card:




And, here is my literal take on her card:



 I downloaded the coffee cup from my Silhouette program, blended my Hero Arts shadow inks and added a touch of Wink of Stella to the steam. The polka dot paper is from PTI, and the leaf is from Lawn Fawn. The stitched mat is from MFT  Blueprints 13. Just for fun, I used 2 different inks on the PTI sentiment...and that was it!

I am also entering this card into the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop...after all, I am a coffee lover! Well, actually Latte's are my fave :)



Thanks so much for stopping by,

I love that you have those little steam waves. I looked through my stuff...and not a coffee stamp in sight. I'm not a big coffee drinker...but its a pleasure I take when I get up early and hit the road to run errands.
