2 Sketches 4 You Laura's Sketch 47

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I had a relaxed one being treated like a Queen! =) And I am still smiling from all your lovely comments, too. Thank you so much my sweet friends!

On to my card for this week's 2 Sketches 4 You. Here is Laura's Sketch #47:

Here is my card:

This week's sponsor is The Cutting Cafe. I thought that if you rotate Laura's sketch 9o degrees, it looked like a coffee cup with a sleeve. So I printed the brown coffee beans from the Coffee Bean Background Set on kraft cardstock for my background. Then I printed images from the Got Coffee? image set on patterned papers from PTI's Pretty Pastels collection for the "sleeve."

I added a layer of velum over the coffee bean background to tone it down a little.

Hope you can play along with us this week! =)


Thanks for stopping by!
