Sketch It at Tuesday Throwdown!

Hello crafty friends!
We are ready to start another brand new challenge at
Tuesday Throwdown
This time there is a fun sketch to play along with that I put together myself!
I thought this would be a good one for those that like to keep it simple as well as those that like to add layers and embellishments.  So I hope that you will come join the fun with us and have a try at this sketch!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here's the card that I made for it:
All the images I have used on this, including the sentiment, all come from our challenge sponsor which is The Cutting Cafe.  I have had these files for a few years and thought this was a great time to pull them out again for a play!  I've used the Got Coffee? and the Coffee Beans Background digital stamp sets to create my card.  Be sure to play along with us as there will be a fabulous prize given away from our sponsor!  There are so many cool files including shaped cards and 3-D items!

I printed out all the images from my computer and cut out a circle around the 'his & hers' coffee mugs image and layered it onto a brown circle panel.  I cut a banner from the printed out sentiment and added some natural twine to the end and attached it along the edge of my card front.  The coffee beans background was just printed out and cut to fit the size of my A2 card front panel.  I sponged the edges with some brown ink and added some red die cut hearts to the bottom and covered them with glossy accents.  The coffee mugs and hearts were colored with Copic markers and I used some stickles to add glitter to the floating hearts and a drop of liquid pearls I added to the middle of the flower on the 'hers' coffee mug.  That circle panel was also sponged around the edges.
I thought this would be a good card to make for my hubby for Valentine's Day as we enjoy our "coffee morning time" together. :)

To see even more creative possibilities with this sketch, be sure to hop on over to the challenge blog and see all of the wonderful inspiration the rest of my design team friends have come up with!
Thanks so much for dropping in today!
