Gasping For A Cuppa!

 I can't remember the last time I went out for a cup of coffee with friends - it's probably coming up to a year. I'll certainly never take it for granted again!

Today's card is and old digi I was given to make a card with when I was part of a Design Team on the disbanded Simply Papercraft Challenge Blog. It's a super cute image from Karleigh Sue...

For a change I've coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pencils. I find these much easier to blend than pens but I don't think the finish is as professional. I've used some embossed white card (resembling 'steam' swirls from the coffee) and some papers from my stash as background. The cute latte and greeting are from Digistamp Boutique.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:
