Shabby and Sassy

I'm a big fan of the Simply Sassy stamps from Sugar Nellie.  If you haven't had a chance to check them out, you definitely should.  Today's card features this stamp, called Luv A Latte.  I purchased it from Funky Kits.  It's a great store, and has wonderful shipping, by the way.  The Simply Sassy Blog is having a Guest Design Team call and I'm entering using this card.

I distressed alot of this card using my distressing tool from Heidi Swapp.  I also inked up the edges of the paper to add to the distressing. The image was stamped with Momento ink and colored with my new Copic colors!  I got some new BV colors for Christmas so this was a great time to try them out.  I added some glossy accents to the coffee in the cup.  The flowers on the sides of the image are part of a length of ribbon.

Thia card is also an easel card, so here is a side view of it:

Here is a front view of it.  I decorated the inside of the card as well. I used off white cardstock and trimmed it to fit. I punched out the bottom edge using an EK Success edge punch and them inked it up as well.  I added some brads to help hold the card up to display it.

Here are the challenges I'm entering this card into:
Simply sassy GDT Call
Cupcake Craft Challenges
Stampin B Challenge
