Coffee Thanksgiving

Another coffee card but this time I am going to use it as well for a Thanksgiving card. I just love this free digital image that was given to those who did the 2016 Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop this year. I am not much of a digi fan but this one really caught my eye so I decided to work with it. It is from Stamplorations and is called A Pumpkin and 3 Lattes. Therefore I will be entering this in the Stamplorations Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge too besides in the coffee blog challenge.

Besides using the digi I also used pattern paper and a sentiment from Gina K. Designs. The card base is done with kraft card stock. The leaf die cuts are from Cheery Lynn Designs. And the fiber on the card is from D. L. Art. The digi design was colored with Bic Mark-It pens and the leaves were die cut from some paper that I had previously inked with various Fall shades of dye ink. I also used the Bic markers on the panel that has the sentiment on it.

I lined the sentiment and the pattern paper panel with black card stock as I thought it made it stand out better. And it was much easier then to add the fiber to the pattern paper panel.

I really like how this card design came about and I think I will be doing more with that digi. While I was at it I printed out several so I am set to go. Just need to get some coloring time in.

Here is a closer view of some of the images and elements in the card. I think this shows how I popped up a lot of the layers.

Supplies used:
Digital image-Stamplorations Pumpkin and 3 Lattes

Cheery Lynn Die: Small Leaves #1 D133
Gina K. Designs Bounty of Blessings Stamp Set

Well, that is all for me today. I am going to take the night off from stamping and hopping and watch some TV. I am a fan of Dancing With the Stars so I don't want to miss that.
