I kind of went out on a limb and used non-coffee colors for this card. Usually when I make a card about coffee, I use kraft and brown and all things java. No brown or craft in this one! How about bright blue and coral?

I grabbed the Coffee stamp set and split up the sentiment onto a Flag It die and the Classy Label die.  I stamped the border on the label with the coordinating image from Love Notes and then added a couple little flags under the sides of the label. Adds a little something fun, don't you think?

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!

  5. This sentiment still cracks me up. Great use of color here on a CAS card that SCREAMS awesome!

  6. Great card! Such a fabulous layout and I really like the subtle border around the Label die; it gives an almost embossed look to it.
