Grateful - Color Dare #359

Chose to create a coffee, tea or cocoa theme at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Caffeine Fueled Paper Play as a tribute to Craftin' Desert Diva's who have contributed, shared and sponsored so many adorable stamps and digitals.  All you have to do is pull out your favorite Craftin’ Desert Divas stamp or digital image and use a coffee, tea or cocoa theme and play along! 

The three colors I chose were Goldrush, New England Ivy and Sage + Peach and Neutral Brown. My background was design paper from "Cats & Bats", the scalloped border was design paper from "Hawthorne" and both were layered with NE Ivy cardstock. A ribbon was added down the middle of the card.  

Started with a White Scalloped frame, stamped leaves with black ink on NE Ivy cardstock, a couple of design papers and adhered leaves with 3D thin foam tape for dimension.  Found some acorns in my stash and added them to the bottom of the leaves.  

I chose the Craftin' Desert Diva's digital squirrel garden image, colored with copics and placed in the pile of leaves...which pretty much covered my frame. Die cut a coffee cup from Paper Smooches with a piece of the PML image from the paper pack to include the heart and placed so the bee appeared as the coffee steam.  Grateful die sentiment was cut from chocolate cardstock, layered and adhered to bottom r-h corner.  

Also sent to the following Challenges:  Please visit each of these challenges to see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered these challenges and maybe you can combine some these challenges too.

There is a lot of action in the centre of that card - colouring, dies, you name it! Love the way everything works together. Never would have thought to combine the Cats and Bats paper with Hawthorn... Great card for all the challenges entered!

I always wondered what those squirrels are doing and now I know -- enjoying a cuppa with their acorns! I love the pretty browns and greens on your autumn card.

Thanks for playing with us at Cut it Up for our Outdoor Fun challenge!
