For My Little Sister

This card is meant for my Divine Secret Sibling on SCS --- sure hope she doesn't surf a lot of blogs!! I haven't used this set (Espressoly for You) in quite some time either (seems like I say that about a lot of my stamps!!!) so out of the dust it came. I used my copics to color the image then sponged around the edges with creamy caramel. The white dots were then added. I think the scraps of designer paper are by Daisy Ds (another favorite of mine). Of course ribbon and brads had to be added too! The coffee in the cup is highlighted with Crystal Effects for a bit of shine. Colors of cardstock include close to cocoa, real red, barely banana, more mustard, and chocolate chip. I am including with this a card kit from my local stamp store. I'm sure she'll like it because the stamps included in the kit are of owls.

The sun is shining today, finally, but the temps are still rather chilly. My beautiful hanging baskets have been chosen by some finches and sparrows as their home. I'll keep taking out the nest unless there's eggs in it.

I'm off to the post office then to work. Hope everyone has a most wonderful day, thanks for stopping by.

Linda, this is very pretty! Yes, the paper is by Daisy D's because I have some of it too! I just hate cutting into it. I don't know what I'm waiting for! I love your coloring and the coffee looks ready to drink! Great job!!!!
