Coffee Talk

Hello Peeps

I bought these Coffee Talk papers from Nitwit last year as I thought they'd go perfectly with this image from Lili of the Valley. It's from the 'My Best Friend' Art Pad (retired) but I also have the stamp.

 I thought it needed a large embellishment so I sketched a coffee cup shape onto one of the papers and cut it out. I've doodled around the edge with a black fineliner pen and added a heart (I used an X-cut heart punch). The sentiments are from the 'Sentiments to Fit Scroll' and 'Pretty Grungy - Good Times' sets by Lili of the Valley

My coffee froth was cut from white card using the 'Loopy Rings' die from Memory Box and I've also added a bit of white cheesecloth. The flowers have been coloured with an Ivory Promarker and I've added pearls/card candi for the centres.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
