Sweet Coffee Card

This is a card I created late last night.  I wanted to be able to link it up in a couple of challenges.  I absolutely LOVE these soft colors.
This card was made using the super sweet Oh Darling line from Crate Paper.  I used a few different patterned paper pieces and scraps to make border strips that I machine stitched together, added a yellow and pink tag sticker from Oh Darling, as well as a mini kraft sentiment tag (stamped enjoy from Paper Sweeties) that's held with a pink pearl stick pin and tucked into a pretty Bay Leaf and Baby Pink seam binding bow that has a snippet (behind that) of Burlap Center Stitch Pink.  The Venti Vanilla Latte was created using a Stampin' Up stamp set with a Starbucks cover from a little left-over gift card, and the straw was hand-drawn onto pink paper from the Oh Darling line, cut, and slid into the latte.  I love all these soft sweet papers and goodies, and enjoyed using them to give a Spring feeling to my coffee card.  I used another sticker from this set that says "Favorite" because coffee really IS my favorite drink, and I love the seafoam green color in this set.
Here is where I will be linking up my coffee card!
