I Like You a Latte

Today's inspiration came from a 6 x 6 paper pack from My Mind's Eye. I've noticed that the two Michael's stores in my area have started carrying these and each store has a different collection. The one I used today is named Follow Your Heart--Be Amazing and it's a pretty collection of papers in mustard yellow, teal blue, kraft and grey. 

There are a couple of papers that have the honeycomb pattern in it, which reminded me of my Geo-Graphic stamp set from Paper Smooches. Thinking about Paper Smooches reminded me of this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, which is a color challenge using the cool Mushroom pallet...and since there was yellow in the challenge and yellow in the paper pack, I had the basis for a card.

Now all I needed was an idea for a layout. Look no further than this week's Mojo Monday sketch #272 and voila, I had a plan!

This is a pretty simple sketch and so the only tricky part was figuring out what image to use from my Paper Smooches collection. I recently won the Cyber Cafe set during a blog hop from Emily Leiphart, so wanted to ink that up again since I haven't used it much. The sentiment though came from the Paper Company's clear stamp set called Coffee Cafe.

I donate most of my cards to Operation Write Home and am currently working to fill my box with year-round, all purpose cards. I think this one will be a great addition.
Have a wonderful day!
