Coffee Cafe Love ~ HSS284, PP380, FF0001

Hey there stampers! Today's card is my design leader card for Hand Stamped Sentiments 284 Sketch Challenge.  I used The Paper Players Color Challenge 380 and and brand new challenge blog called Festive Friday...in fact this is their very first challenge!  I'm so happy to play along!
I chose to go with Coffee Cafe to make my fun Valentine's Day card.  I used some retired Quilted Christmas DSP as the background for the yummy cup of coffee.  Even though this was intended for Christmas I love how it can be incorporated into a Valentine's Card easily!  Red gingham is classic!  
I also incorporated lots of hearts in different sizes and textures.  I think it's pleasing to the eye.  A little bit of paper doily adds some charm.  I popped the heart sentiment and the beans up on dimensionals as well as the gingham square.

Come play along with us at HSS.  This sketch is so versatile and I'm excited to see everyone's creations!

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Coffee Cafe, Merry Cafe
Ink: Crumb Cake, Versamark
Paper: Crumb Cake, Real Red, Whisper White, Quilted Christmas DSP
Accessories: heart EF, Red bakers twine, Coffee Cups Framelits, White EP, paper doily

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
