Coffee Birthday Card with Cas-ual Fridays


I had some time to play along with the Cas-ual Fridays Calling All Sistahs Challenge that's going on currently.  I was inspired by the colors and ... well, of course the coffee!

I started with some of that watercolor paper pad I picked up at Walmart.  Honestly I don't do crafty shopping or any shopping there too much.  I prefer to buy from some of my favorite small crafty businesses and shops, but I was there late to pick up a couple things I needed including foam board so of course I had to stroll the aisles a bit and there it was for $5!!  It was perfect for the colors in this inspiration photo:


Perfect, right!?


I started by cutting my base with that awesome Reverse Confetti Lacy Scallop die (one of my fave background dies!).  And I started with just a plain white second layer, but then there was this leftover cut from my previous Jillian Vance project so I added that ...I think it makes a great backdrop for the AWESOME Coffee Cup die from Cas-ual Fridays!  I just love this cup with it's heart shaped handle!  Even better that I won this set!!  Thanks again to Michele for her awesome generosity!  And speaking of winning... this challenge has a $25 gift code prize... bumped up to $50 if you use Cas-ual Fridays products!

I filled my cup with a bunch of flowers cut using the Friendly Flowers dies.  I love this flower set... I didn't even cut the dies apart.  I just cut a bunch of flower layers at one time with each color and then mix and match!  


And I thought this sentiment from the Peace, Love and Coffee stamp set was just right... and since this is a birthday card, on the inside the sentiment is a simple Happy Birthday!   I'm also playing along with the Seize The Birthday Challenge which is always Birthday with an optional twist of Coffee or Tea this time around!

Hope you enjoyed your visit!  Hoping to join in on a couple more challenges this weekend.  Hope you'll get some inspiration and play along too!
