Mom, You Are Special

Day 8...Be sure to stop on over to the Spring Coffee Lover's BlogHop and check out all the great projects and cards...they are filled with inspiration...join in the have until the 25th (today) to submit cards that are Spring themed and include coffee, tea or hot chocolate.  

This is my last card for the Coffee BlogHop.  It's a Birthday Card that will be used in the future by hopefully one of my Grandchildren.  The background is my personalized design paper using a variety of coffee stamps, randomly stamped on White Daisy and colored. Added some flowers that were stamped in a variety of inks to Spring it up.  

This photo shows the Sentiment Detail.  The label was cut from Cricut Design Space and stamped with VersaMark, heat embossed using Black powder, colored with ShinHan alcohol-based pens, and adhered to background using 3D regular Foam Tape. One special cup was stamped, colored, heat embossed with clear powder, fussy-cut and adhered to the background paper with 3D thin Foam Tape.  

This next photo shows the inside of the card which was just stamping flowers from the same stamp set in the same colors as used on the outside of the card, and other stamped sentiments.
