Life Begins After Coffee

Today's card is for the July Sketch For You to Try. I needed a quick birthday card for a male and the sketch fit the bill. I kept everything super simple as you can see. Center stage is an image from the Lil' Inker Designs Coffee Cozy Dies and Stamp set. After die-cutting the "cozy" portion, I ran it through a paper crimper to give it some texture. I combined everything with patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Prairie Hill collection. The fishtail tags were die cut using The Cat's Pajamas Easy Rosettes CutUps. No coloring on this one!
