Bean Thinking...

Oure sneak peeks are starting Sunday night, eeeek, so excited!* So that means I'm doing Mosaic Monday" a little early, hope that works for you! ;) Today I used the "Inspiration Mosaic" with two images I had never used from Rupa's "My Cuppa Joe", (can you believe it, I always go for the mugs LOL! But the "to go" cup is sooo cute pieced, here I used Basic Grey.) The grid shows me exactly where to put my images and sentiment.

I used two Long Rectangle Scalloped Nestabilities behind my Creamy Caramel mat, to match my scalloped punch under the circle. I stamped just the beans repeatedly at the bottom to make a big pile and then colored them with two brown Copics. Card base is Cool Caribbean, I love pairing aqua with brown. The dashed lines at the corners and around the greeting rectangle are fun to match with the border on Rupa's labels.

Coffee...mmm mmm good!
