à la modes - Miss You a Latte

Hi, everyone! It's Day Two of à la modes previews! Today's set is Miss You a Latte. If you're a coffee lover like me, you NEED this set!


So, I was working on this card the other night, and my sweet hubby brought me a Starbucks latte. Totally appropriate, huh? I decided to pull the sleeve off the cup and use it as a panel in my design! The paper is from the Hometown collection by October Afternoon. I colored the image with Copics, then I cut it out and mounted it on the embossed oval.


I did a simple finish on the inside with one of  the sentiments from the set. A gift card would be the perfect addition -- just pretend it's there, okay?  ;)

Stop by Kim's Blog after 11 am to see who has previews to share with you today! We'll be back tonight at 10:00 pm for the MFT VIP Blog Hop! Hope to see you then!

Have a great day!
Christina
