Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Continued

I had planned to post a card every day during the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, but the stars didn't align.  My computer crashed big time.  The great fear was that I had lost all my files.  Fortunately, my external hard drive had an old backup still on it with all the files.  Whew!

Finally I can post my second card.

This is the square version for Linky posting. 

Here is a closeup of the card for judging/commenting purposes:

The digital image is from blog hop Super Sponsor STAMPlorations.  I colored it with Derwent Intense water soluble Ink Pencils.

I created the background with Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Inks in Rusty Hinge, Mustard Seed and a little Bundled Sage, using the spritz and swipe method.  I also used the inks to edge the colored image paper. I placed a Darice Holly and Leaves Die Cut Embossing Folder over the orange background.

What a fun card. Love the die cut background and the beautifully coloured image - reminds me of Farm Stand in the Fall meets Starbucks (I am guessing the cup contains a pumpkin spice drink). Thanks for joining us at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog.
