Sunshine and Coffee

I have a fun, summery card to share today!  Right now, where I live, it is really a heat wave.  So this morning, the sun is streaming through the windows as I am sitting here drinking my coffee.

I used my favorite embossing powder on this card -- Sparkle!  This bold image can be overpowering in a card, but with the translucent powder, it really makes a statement without taking away from my focal image, the coffee cup.  

The coffee cup was sponged on both sides just to keep it from being too flat.  I added just a touch of color and stickles to the little flower and finished off the card with some black pearls.

I have used this stamp set recently on this card.  

Supplies:  Webster's Pages Alison Kreft Starburst stamp set, Versamark ink, Recollections Sparkle embossing powder, Lil Inkers Design Coffee Cozies stamp set, Versafine Smokey Grey ink, GKD Wild Dandelion cardstock, other supplies from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you will stay cool and caffeinated today!
