Coffee Lovers Hop - Jumbo Pumpkin Spice Latte

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a card for the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop today.

I couldn't resist joining in this time around so I could use this hilarious AI set that Nichol Spohr sent me in a prize recently.  (THANKS, Nichol!!!)  Great sentiment and I love the image of the besties enjoying coffee together!!  (Talk, talk, talk....!) You can barely detect (amid the saturated colors of the background) that I used a pastel watercolor background for this panel.

The stamped image is BIG and is placed appropriately on a LARGE format card!!  Ha.
Supplies used include:
Simon Says Stamp: Art Impressions - Pumpkin Spice stamp set
Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa
Mixed Media Paper
Spectrum Noir markers
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain
DCWV patterned and foiled cardstock
Shimmery ribbon from stash

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you liked my card and that you will join in the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Hop, too!
