We Are The Perfect Blend!

Decided to make a quick and fun card for a couple challenges!  I've used the Gina K Designs Perfect Blend Stamp Set and I'm playing along over at the Monthly Mix Challenge which is all about Ombre Ink Blending!  And be sure to see how you could win this set at the bottom of this post!

I recently got a cool Coffee Bean stencil from Funky Fossil Designs and decided to use it on this card along with some distress inks and blended light to dark... just using the lightest green first and heavier on the ink at the bottom right... then following up with the darker green and not going as high up with the color.

I didn't want to cover up those cool green coffee beans (that is fun to say) so I used the photo frame die without the inside portion as my base layer for these awesome coffee images from the Gina K set.  I added my sentiment onto the speech bubble for fun!  And those pretty green sequins are from Sparkle Blends Emerald blend.. I love all of the different shades and sizes that come in these packets!

I'm also playing along over at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge which is No Designer Paper!  Didn't need it here!

Now... I had an ulterior motive for this one today... I need to remind you that you could win this Gina K Designs Perfect Blend Stamp Set!  You have until tomorrow evening to visit my Design Team Closeup post over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog and maybe learn something new to you about me and play along with my Two Truths and a Lie game for a chance to win this awesome set!

Thanks for stopping!
