Summer, Coffee, Color Inspiration... and more!!!

Hey there my friends.

I've been determined to participate in some challenges and blog contests this week... and I haven't done that bad.  Working all day with a little extra time, starting back to a little exercising, trying to get some things done around the house and mom's, plus wanting to make some projects for these challenges.  So you'll see I'll post at least a card per day within the next days...

In this post I'm sharing a card I made for several challenges.

First, I have to tell you that the moment I saw this challenge it called my attention because of two things.  One is that the huge amount of sponsors supporting it, and the other one is the theme.  It is a Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop (or tea, or cocoa) challenge.  Summer & Coffee, huh?   So I combined this theme, with beautiful color combo I had in mind from Cosmic Colours Challenge #14... very appropriate for Summer.  Finally, I used inspiration for the card sketch of the current Unity Be Inspired challenge and will also share in next Friday's Friends with Flair, also at Unity Stamp Co.

So this is what I came up with. 


I combined different colors of cardstock and inked the edges.  I also applied some distress inks with water to a piece of vellum for a unique background.  Stamps are from different grab bags and a Kit of the Month from Unity Stamp Co.  I really liked the result.  Didn't ever think of combining a hot beverage with Summer.  LOL!


Hope you liked my card.  Would love to see some comments around here.  And remember you can follow me in facebook... I want more friends in my page... trying to get at least 10 new ones.  You can visit me HERE.
And stay tuned for another card I made using Latina Crafter products and will be posted soon.  :)


Here's some information and references about the challenges I'm entering this card:
