Loves Rubberstamps challenge using Cocoa's Latte

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week has started out well and if you are lucky to have had the Martin Luther King Holiday, that you were able to enjoy your extra long weekend.  I was not feeling very well Monday but it worked out to have this extra day to rest and get ready for my hectic week. I did have a chance to get working on some projects and that included my project for the Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday challenge!

Our wonderful sponsor for this week is Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps!

Our challenge this week was to look at the website: www.kirklands.com and to be inspired by a product there. 

Here was my inspiration:

Not sure if you can see it too well but It is a set of canvas art showing two cute baristas serving some hot java!  

Here is my card...

The Design Team was fortunate to get some Sweet 'N Sassy digi images and I thought this cute image called "Cocoa's Latte" was perfect for it! You might remember this sweet mouse who I also used in one of my Christmas projects some weeks back.  This mouse is just so super adorable and I had so much fun coloring him up with my copic markers.  I paper pieced the latte cup using a new paper collection in the store called Cashmere Dame by Glitz.  I also used these papers in the background. I love Glitz  and this collection is so pretty.  I edged all of the papers with my Tim Holtz distress ink in Frayed Burlap. The flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I sprayed these up with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold.  I glued the flowers down using Best Glue Ever.   The sentiment is from a Fiskars stamp set I have at home and I thought it would be cute to stamp right on the image.  I used my Memento ink in Black Tuxedo to do so.  I'm really happy with the way it came out!

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store. I would love to see your projects posted!

Hope you all like my card for the week!  Have a fantastic rest of the week and thanks so much for stopping by!
