Loves Rubberstamps Challenge using Coffee Kiki La Rue

Hello and Happy Tuesday! Today is Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Day!!! :) And with this challenge, we were given a picture to inspire us!  I love this type of challenge because it can be anything you feel gives you inspiration and everyone has different ideas of what it is for them!  So if you feel "inspired" to join this challenge, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog and join in! You could win some prizes and it's just a lot of fun.  I know you all are super creative and would have a good time with this!  

So here is the inspiration picture.  I really like this picture and it reminds me of waking up early and having that first sip of coffee to get you going!  Not that I look or feel as beautiful as this model first thing in the morning! LOL

And here is my card! 

 I used some corrugated Kraft card stock which I picked up at Michael's. I picked a CC Design stamp called "Coffee Kiki La Rue" and stamped this cute image using my Memento black ink.  I thought she was adorable and couldn't wait to color her up with my copic markers.  I paper pieced her clothing and shoes with the designer paper.  I used "Random" Paper Collection by Crate Papers.  These were such fun and pretty papers to work with.  I placed Kiki on a "Beaded Circle" Die Cut from Spellbinders.  I also wanted to match the little flowers on the image by making some daisies with the paper collection.  I used the MFT "Rolled Daisy" die cut and these were so much fun and super easy to make!  I made 3 flowers using the papers. I added a pearl center in one and then took a few small white rose buds from I Am Roses and added it to the centers of the other two daisies. I also used my Atyouspica glitter pens in "melon" and "lemon" to color up the flowers on the image and give it some shimmer. The sentiment is from a  stamp collection called "Latte Love" from Fiskers. I stamped it on a handmade banner also using the designer paper.  
Be sure to check out the Loves Rubberstamps store for Kiki La Rue and other great stamps! Laura also has a ton of pre-orders coming in all the latest and greatest!
Hope you like my card and thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful rest of the week! :)
