Happiness Is a Cup of Coffee

Back a couple weeks ago created a few backgrounds using the shaving cream technique with the thought in mind to use this particular background for the Fall Coffee Bloghop with colors to represent an autumn day.  

Masked and stamped the background with several leaves in a variety of colors, and then to give it more texture ran it through the crackle embossing folder.   I then went through my stash of previously stamped die cuts and chose the branch and little birdies holding a cup, colored and adhered with 3D foam tape.  Found a stamp sentiment, colored, layered and adhered to background with foam sheet.  

On the inside of the card, stamped masked and stamped three leaves and acorn on the bottom corner and stamped a frame for a sentiment.
