World's Best Dad Card

Here's one last Father's Day card that coordinates with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Summer Blog Hop and uses the sketch over on the FTHS blog.

I made a 5 1/2 X 7 1/2 inch card base with tan paper that I had printed with coffee beans from FTHS "Birdbrain Needs Coffee" set (I isolated the coffee beans by Birdbrain's feet and then made a pattern out of them). Then I sized up and printed three of the digis from FTHS World's Best Coffee set along with the "World's Best Dad" sentiment included in that set. I die cut the coffee cups with Gina Marie Designs Stitched Circle dies and matted them with a larger size die from the same set. I used Gina Marie Designs Drop Pennant dies for the sentiment and mat behind it. I also printed some white paper with the coffee bean design and cut a 1 1/2 inch strip to line the middle of the card. 
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  14. I love your card. I was thinking this image would be perfect also if I chose not to color it, as you did - I needed up coloring mine for the challenge. I love how cute it is. Thanks for sharing. I might have to borrow your un-colored design :) I love it so much!
