Thanks a Latte!

Hi everyone.  This is my Design Team card for the latest Addicted to Stamps & More challenge - Addicted to [Black & White] #5.  It's such a classic color combination ... and when I saw this digital stamp, I knew it would be perfect.  Just the tiniest bit of red finishes it off nicely.

Prize:  7 digital images 
 (please follow the rules of the challenge to be eligible to win)

Stamps:  Coffee Time Thanks a Latte (Bugaboo)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Black polka-dot DP (SU!)
Ink:  Copics:  R27, W4; black marker (Sharpie)
Accessories & Tools:  Crystal Effects, clear stickles, double-stitched black ribbon (Michael's), mini black brad, adhesives, sticky strips, and dimensionals

I used an adorable image from this week's sponsor - Bugaboo.  I colored it with copics and added a little Crystal Effects to the heart and polka-dots on the middle coffee cup ... and clear stickles to the foam (or whipped cream) ... which ever you'd like to think is on top of the coffee! :)  For the banner, I just used my thumb and fingers to give it a little shape and then secured the one end with a brad and added a dimensional part way along to secure it in place.

Here's a close-up of the main image:

I hope I have inspired you to join us for this fun challenge.  Check out the other fabulous creations by the Design Team at ATS&M!
