Brewing Up a Birthday Wish

Hello, friends!  Won't you please come join me for a cuppa joe this fine Monday?  Yes, I admit that I am a coffee-holic. I even have a special thermos I purchased from Hammacher-Schlemmer that keeps my freshly brewed coffee fresh and hot throughout the day, and I take it everywhere with me.  Now THAT's a coffee-holic!!  LOL!

I have a good friend of mine who is also a coffee-holic, so I chose that theme for the card I made for her birthday, using the Teatime stamp set from Rubbernecker

I have two views to show you of my card because Joanie, on Splitcoaststampers, gave a technique challenge that she coined as Sentiment Underneath.  In her words, she wrote:  "It's pretty simple...just attach an image panel on the front of your card with a brad at the top only. Then stamp the sentiment under the image panel on the cardstock, patterned paper, or another panel."
Here's the closed view:

and here's the open view:

Isn't that a cute idea she had?

Supplies I used:

Stamps:  Teatime Set (#457) Rubbernecker
Cardstock:  Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, White, polkadotted dp
Ink:  Memento Black
Accessories:  Stampin' Up's Really Rust and Chocolate Chip markers, chocolate brad, octagon Nestabilities, scalloped border punch, dotted swiss embossing folder, slanted corner punch, dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific day!
