Coffee Card for a Guy

It's SPRINGTIME which means it's time for another Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop!!!

For each blog hop, we get a free digi image from JessicaLynnOriginals  But I also fell in love with this spring release from Jessica and had to snap it up to make a card for a guy. He will love the sentiments on it.  

I digitally colored this image.  After printing, I added quite a bit of additional color with color pencils to create the effect of "wood" planks. 

I also used Stampin' Up dark brown cardstock for the card base and a striped paper which had no identifying label.   Various bakers' twine in matching colors added the finishing touch. 

I placed the card on a piece of "woodgrain" paper for my photo.  I'm wondering if that is a distraction from the actual card.  

This one I'm entering in
