Coffee - the Smell of Possibility

First, let me say that I do not know who drew this image-- i saw this quote & girl with coffee image online without any information about the artist.. I have searched without any luck.. I hope if anyone knows they will get in touch with me. I wanted to use bright, sunny summery colors and although the colors are muted, I love this card..

I used the Taylored Expressions "Joe-to-Go" set for the cup images and made the sleeves by paper-piecing using some scraps of Bazzill Basics Paper "Miss Teagen Sue" collection . This is some of my all time FAVORITE paper !!  The small amount of coloring on the cups, the mug and the shirt stripes was done with my Akashiya SAI watercolor brush pens. I finished up the image with some  Scattered Straw Distress Stickles on the buttons.

Card #3 for the super Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop !!  Check the Hop out for hundreds of amazing projects. I posted a card each day of the Spring Hop but this time, life is getting in the way. Although I do hope to post another before the finish on Friday, June 12.. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making it !!
