My friend Sally's 50th b-day card. Since we meet once a week at a local coffee shop with our knitting friends of course I had to use my new fav. set.......Like it a Latte. So fun adding liquid applique with Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the cream. I got the idea from a Xmas card done by leslierich. Thanks Leslie :-) I used my faux craft ink (ink stamp with versamark and then inked with Close to Cocoa classic ink) embossing technique to emboss all of the sentiments and coffee cup and cream. Works really well. Lots of dimension in this card, which requires lots of touching :-) Enjoy, Nancy

This is so cute! I like the scattering of coffee beans with the sentiment stamped over top. Also, the green appeals to me...kind of a minty latte look. The flowered paper makes it fresh and fun! This definitely looks like a birthday latte!

Your fluffy, creamy top looks wonderful -- I have been in search of liquid applique since they called for it on a challenge a month or two ago -- I can't find it anywhere -- just love this -- such a great look -- wonderful job -- TFS!!!
