Coffee~Tea Monkey Challenge Card

At A La Card Monkey we have a really Yummy Challenge for you this week... Yep Coffee or Tea Cards, you can make a card using the sketch if you want. I used the Coffee theme and the Sketch on my card and it was so fun and easy that way. I am not sure why I went with pink but, I love this DSP from last year.

Terry and I go out to coffee all the time maybe 4 times a week, and my Husband makes me a cup of tea everyday when he gets home from work.  Yep I am a lucky girl!!

 I found the Giant rhinestone at Micheal's, I also have them in pink... and yes Deanna I got you a pack of them too. Jump over to see Terry Su's Coffee card.

 That cup of Coffee in the picture is from a Coffee shop that Terry and I go to just hang out and talk, sometimes we bring my laptop. I took this picture with my phone and emailed it to myself and could not believe how good it came out. Oh BTW its a "Coconut Mocha" with whip.
I used rhinestones instead of brads. One of the saying in this stamp set from 1999 is "Taking a break from the daily grind to see how you've bean!" I just used my Chocolate chip marker to stamp "daily" and "grind" and then punched them out with the jewelry tag punch.
Close up of the big rhinestone, and my scallop border that I stamped a coffee bean into each scallop. I think that is so cute but, my ribbon covers it a lot.
