You, Me & Coffee

Okay, it's been forever since my last post.  Haven't had time to do much crafting lately, but over the last week I have been working on and off on this card with whatever time I can spare.

The image is 'Latte' by Krista Smith.  The backing paper is a digital paper with tiny white polka dots (I have forgotten where I got it from).  I have typed and printed a bunch of coffee names on the digital paper to create the background.  The cityscape is cut out from a DP by Cre8tive (from the Street Life pack)

The sentiment is also typed and printed on the digital paper.  It reads You, Me & Coffee {the perfect blend}.

A close up of Latte.  She was coloured with copics and tiny rhinestones for her earrings.

So glad I finally completed this card.  Would love to jump out of my hectic world and into the crafty one for a few days.  Hopefully I will be able to manage a little more crafting in the coming weeks.
Hope you liked my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Would like to put this card to the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge - Colour - I used copic markers to colour my image and used distressed ink to sponge the edges of the backing paper.
Sweet Stampin - Buttons, Bows, and Polka dots. - A bow made of twine, a blue heart button and the digital paper used is covered in tiny polka dots.  Hope you can see it.
