Inspirational Card For A Coffee Lover

It's Sunday already, and Mojo Monday is just around the corner, so here is my card for the challenge......
 For my card I used:
Stamps:  Verve Coffee set vs-0219, Verve free digis Here Comes The Sun
Other:  Distress inks and markers
             Spectrum Noir crystal clear sparkle pen
             India ink black
             Micron .01 pen
             Martha Stewart scoring tool
             Clarity stencil brush

I started with pink card stock for a top-fold A2 card.  I stamped coffee beans from the Verve coffee set with spun sugar distress inks randomly onto the card front.  Then I added score lines along the left side with my scoring tool, and brushed the same ink onto the card front with my Clarity stencil brush to highlight the raised score lines.  A strip of black and white striped paper along the left side to balance the composition was added.

I placed a piece of vellum over the verse of the digi sheet, and with a pink distress marker then my Micron pen, I traced the verse onto the vellum.  When dry, I backed it with a small white scrap of card stock, and attached it to my card front.

I stamped, colored, and fussy-cut two coffee cups from the digi set, and added them with foam tape.  Some sparkle from the Spectrum Noir sparkle pen completes the card.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Allsorts Challenge  - Something beginning with "B" (beans (coffee)

Simply Less Is More Challenge - Stripe

Verve Diva Challenge - Use digi stamps

Mojo Monday Challenge - Sketch  
Thanks for stopping by.  Now it's off to my garden to play in the sunshine for a bit.
