Birthday Cuppa Love

I have a cute card that I made for Classy Cards N Such Blog today.   have a lot of friends that are coffee and tea drinkers so this will be a great card to have on hand.

I started with a white card base and added a layer of pink and white.  The next layer is one that I made a while back when I was playing with my Ken Oliver Color Bursts.   I made them using different colors so now I have one ready for this card.  I like to make extra's when I have the supplies out, they really come in handy to help you a make a quick card for an occasion you may have forgotten about..  The color bursts also are good to have for a card or project when you do not have the color of paper you need.  You just make your own.   For this background I used the Memory Box Texture Drip Ring stencil along with Ken Oliver Color Bursts in  Alazarin CrimsonOrange and just a little dab of the Ultramarine Blue,  which made the hint of green on my card.

I used the Poppy Stamps Teacup Stack die that just arrived from the Classy Cards store.  I put some pink and yellow card stock behind the cups.   I popped the cups up on the background with Joy Foam Pads Large.

The sentiment was stamped using the Sweet N' Sassy stamps called "Keep In Touch".  I like this set because it has almost every sentiment one needs in card making.

For the finishing touch, I added sequins and attached them with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.  I think the sequins just help to give the card a more festive look.  

Thanks, so much, for coming by today.  Have a great weekend.
