given enough coffee...





In trying to keep up with a Stampin' Up Sunday, here's my weekly Coffee card:

cardstock:  pti  paper:  basic grey/persimmon  stamps:  stampin' up/perfect blend  ink:  hero arts hues, zing white  other:  paper accents/vellum, circle/pinking circles dies

I used the Stampin' Up set



A sweet 3 piece set with a great sketchy cup.

I was inspired by



I focused on the overall colors and see that buffet in the back, I picked my base layer with that in mind.

I'm also playing along with

































Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!
