Viva La Verve #2 August.

Today I have two posts and this is the first. It is my card for the second Viva La Verve  sketch for August

When I saw this I knew I would be able to join in.

Here is my card.

It is a 6x6 tent fold. I made my own background paper using a plastic bag and 4 distress ink pads. I added 2 images off the Better With You  set embossing on parts of the beans with WOW hot chocolate embossing powder.
Then I stamped the Java stamp on a cut off of cream card. The stripe is a paper I have had for years which I also used to paper piece on to the coffee cups. The main sentiment is off the set too which I cut out using a stiched circle die.
The Happy Birthday is from Simply Amazing set which I stamped in Butterscotch and cut my own fishtail banner. Everything is lifted using my trusty Pin Flare Glue.

I am also entering this card in to the following challenges. Scrabook Stamp Society, anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a word or two so I know you have been.
