Coffee Inspiration...

Hi Fellow Scrappers and Cardmakers! 
Today, I wanted to make a card from the beautiful sketch from Viva La Verve Week #1 April. I printed out the sketch at the beginning of the month and I was debating on colors? I knew I wanted to use the diecut Coffee from Verve. It truly is beautiful! I also knew I wanted to make it a shaker card. So the past couple of weeks I was thinking browns....but this morning I decided to use lots of cheerful colors and make this an inspirational card. Multiple colors are so out of my norm but I loved how cheerful it came out! 

I didn't plan on using black along the edges, however when I printed up the top sentiment...the black ink from the computer touched the edge. So instead of printing it out again I just chalked up all the edges and added black for the diecut "coffee" and along the scalloped edge under the shaker. Funny how a simple mistake can make a card turn out good. 

A closer view of the  flowers and I used several Cheery Lynn Diecuts too. The beads for the shaker are clear, as close as a white without covering up the coffee diecut.

I added a strip of pearls to the top and all the flowers are pre-made. The teal polka dot is from Recollections and the two pink ones are from a huge bag of flowers that I bought at a local scrapbooking yard sale for 3 bucks! :0)

So here is the beautiful sketch! Thank you again, again and again! 

Have a great day! As always thanks for stopping by! 
Hugs Lisa
