Hocus Pocus - I need Coffee to Focus

This card was being made using the inspirational picture on the Three Amigos BlogHop Challenge #6 "Falling For You" combined with the Tuesday Morning Sketch #240 and using the freebie image of Brentwood "Hocus Pocus" at Jessical Lynn's Originals

Needed the simplicity of a sketch because of the time spent on the coloring and this sketch fit right in...and of course was a no brainer to use "Falling For You" paper pack.  Cut each layer to match the sketch, layered each design paper with Espresso cardstock, focal point added to background with thin foam sheet and fussy-cut one of the flowers from the background design paper and adhered in corner.  

The inside of card was decorated with the left over zip strips and one of the images from the Falling For You Complements.
