Miss You - My Besties Coffee Card

Celebrating their 2nd birthday, Little Acres Creations is collaborating with Coffee Loving Cardmakers for an amaing event and giveaway!!!



This is the card I made to enter in the card challenge part of the celebration.


I really don't have a lot of choices for a coffee themed card, but I LOVE this Sherri Baldy's Coffee Bestie and the paper is from Sherri Baldy's printable paper pack Butterfly Dreams.  I stamped "Miss You" on the coffee cup...I thought it was the perfect sentiment.  I used a stitched oval die to cut out the image and then inked around the edges with Distress Ink.  I used a punch to cut out a few hearts and added them to the hearts that are already a part of the image.  I used Liquid Glass on the hearts to make them dimensional and glossy.  I thought a few flowers would be perfect too.

Now it's time to enter in the challenge!
