Birthday Coffee or Tea?

It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! Our topping for this latest challenge is sure to be a popular one: Coffee or Tea!



As always, our topping is optional; as long as you've got a birthday project, we'd love you to share it with us. 
I drink more tea than coffee, but decided to go with a coffee theme anyway:


After initially trying a very clean and simple design, I ended up with this groovy card! The Bunn-style coffee pot and the orange that I chose for the sentiment seemed perfect for a retro treatment. And of course a punny sentiment never hurts, either. 
You may have one or two coffee or tea-themed stamps or papers in your crafting collection... but even if you don't, I hope you'll join us! 


Supplies: white & Stampin' Up mambo melon cardstock, Stampin' Up patterned paper, A. Jillian Vance Design Simply Said: Pothead, Brew-tiful & Beautiful Rose stamps, Versamark, Catherine Pooler tiki torch & Stampin' Up early espresso inks, Hero Arts clear embossing powder, foam tape

Pin It Now!

This is such an awesome retro card! I love that coffee pot (even though, like you, I prefer coffee), it just looks awesome against that perfect pattern paper! Love it!
