How do I love Coffee with Friends?

...Let me count the ways! No seriously, I WILL count the ways I love my new Flourishes Coffee with Friends stamp set:

1. I just plain ole LOVE coffee sets
2. The acrylic is super quality, takes SU classic ink without piling
3. Several choices of coffee mugs (size and shape) AND a choice of mug decorations
4. I love flourishes/swirls and this set has many designs
5. Each Flourishes stamp set comes with a "Flourishes" copyright stamp for the back of your card

This card is a very special thank you card, and I took advantage of the really great colors for today's Color Challenge -pomegranite, wasabi, celery and black. I used the tall mug and one of the 4 choices to decorate it. I also followed Julee's Mojo44 sketch with this card. Julee has the BEST sketches and this week was no exeption!

The corners of this each have one plastic dew drop from the mega bag I found at Michaels. The background panel was ran thru the CB with the Swiss Dots folder and the circle tag used the Flowers die cuts. The saucer of the cup was pieced from a scrap of wasabi DP and the rectangle panel also uses a bit of celery DP. I colored the mug and tag with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

Card Deets:
Stamps - Coffee with Friends, Circle of Friendship
Paper - black, wild wasabi, purely pomegranite, celery, DP
Accessories - black brads, pomegranite double stitched ribbon, cuttlebug, prismacolor pencils
