Java Great Birthday!

Hi Crafty Friends,
Guess what? This is my first post as an OFFICIAL member of the AMAZING Kat Scrappiness Design Team!!!! Have you joined in the Coffee Lovers Cardmaker's Spring/Summer Blog Hop yet? Kat Scrappiness is a SUPER Sponsor and has an amazing deal for you 15% off EVERYTHING in the COFFEE category. All the items I used in my card below can be found in that category!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is the craziest coffee or tea concoction you have ever had?
A: Me? I'm not very adventurous so I have had Gingerbread Coffee from Trader Joe's and it was GROSS.

I started my card by creating the coffee bean panel with the Gina Marie Coffee Stencil from the Kat Scrappiness Store. I used Tea Dye and Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Inks and blender brushes.
I taped it down to my blue base card. Then I die cut the wonderful Scallop Heart from the blue paper that matched my base and I diecut the white heart using the NEW Layering Heart Die Set (that goes with ALL Kat Scrappiness Heart Dies).
I colored the darling little man and mug with copic markers and foam taped him to the middle of the heart so he pops from the card. I stamped the sentiments onto a Kat Scrappiness Stitched Fishtail Banner die and added the sentiments to the top and bottom of  my card.

The finishing touch was the little RED Heart in the corner of the heart die and the bright blue sequins.
