Don't you just love Thursdays!  Today the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge is a color challenge.

We are using Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, and Soft Sky.  I found some of Stampin' Up! lovely designer series paper to help me with my card today.

CCMC #479 (2)

With cooler weather on the way, you might want more coffee cards!  Here are the details.

The card base is Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.

Use a piece of the herringbone blue from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  At the bottom add a piece of the green with the hearts from the same pack.  It measures 1 3/8 x 3 3/4.  Part of this paper is also used to make the sleeve for the cup.  There's a framelit for that in the Coffee Cup Framelits.  The patterned paper for the cup is also from the Coffee Break pack.  The lid is cut from Garden Green card stock.

If you look closely,  you can see that there is a doily under the cup.  It has been colored with Lemon Lime Twist ink and a dauber.  The leaves at the bottom of the cup are stamped from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Garden Green.  Stamp it on patterned paper from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Punch them out with the Leaf Punch.

The heart on the cup is stamped in Lemon Lime Twist onto Whisper White.  Just cut it out.  The stamp is from the Merry Cafe stamp set.

The sentiment is stamped in Soft Sky and then cut apart.  Glue onto the card.

CCMC #479 inside

Here's the inside of the card.  Add a strip of paper from Coffee Break and another leaf.  Complete the sentiment on the inside.  In keeping with the outside, cut the words apart and glue.
