Strong Coffee

Coffee must be hot and strong.  Especially decaf.  Why do so many people make decaf coffee weaker than caffinated coffee?  (Just a little mini-rant.  I'm over it.)
A fun Summery coffee card using Verve digital image and sentiment.
Capitalizing on the flower on the cup, I used a Spellbinder embossing folder, rubbing just a hint of yellow ink on it first before running it through my Cuttlebug.
I printed the cup image four times so I could fussy cut some of the flowers and add them coming out of the cup.  I cut one blue leaf with an Elizabeth Crafts Design die.  The sentiment is cut with MFT Stitched Rectangles and the yellow backing was cut with a Die-namics Rectangle Stax die.
