Stop and Smell the Coffee Card

If there is a flower that smells like coffee I would want that flower! The smell/aroma of coffee is one of my favorites! I love grinding my own coffee beans, it makes the kitchen smell yummy and makes a good cup of coffee. I still have a drip coffee maker by Bonavita and I really like it. I make a strong pot and then put the leftovers in the refrigerator for iced coffee the next day. Truth be told, I prefer cold brewed or iced coffee. It has to be really cold outside before I drink hot coffee. Okay, I'm sure that's more than you wanted to know about my coffee preferences.

Onto this Stop and Smell the Coffee Card! I was inspired by several rainbow colored coffee cards at the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I decided to use an image by Bugaboo Digi Stamps called Coffee Time - Smell The Coffee. This image has been in my stash since 2011 and it's still one of my favorites. I colored the image with Copic markers and then it was die cut using a stitched rectangle die by Lil' Inkers. The plaid patterned paper is by Lawn Fawn and I added some punched grass using a Fiskars punch with Green Apple cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. Some purple twine from The Twinery, the sentiment from the image set and three sequins finished the card. That's it! I thought about adding a butterfly and then forgot until after I took the pictures. So, if you want to envision a little yellow butterfly on the right top corner of the image it just might live there. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
