Thought You Might Need A Pick Me Up

I know I sure do! What an insane week this has been. Four tests to study for, plus work, plus a ton of happenings with my blogs - and it's only Wednesday! Way too much going on at once. But that's okay, it makes life interesting. :)

Although I'm not a coffee drinker (love the smell, hate the taste) this cinnamon swirl drink is looking pretty tasty right now! 

I created this card for this week's Whimsical Wednesday challenge - emboss it! Our sponsor this week, Limited Runs Digital Stamps, was kind enough to provide the team with digis to use on our projects. I thought this one matched the sentiment nicely! When is coffee not a good pick me up? Well.. unless you're me. :) 

One lucky winner will receive 3 digis of their choice! And let me tell you, their images sure are cute!

I used Kraft cardstock for the base of the card and DCWV papers from their Stack 8 collection. I thought the papers were fitting for a coffee shop - cozy and inviting. I embossed a strip of Kraft cardstock using a polka dot embossing folder and my Cuttlebug - reminds me of a coffee sleeve. :) The sentiment is of course from Whimsical Designs, more specifically the 'Everyday Sentiments' stamp set. I added some 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon and some rhinestones from my stash to accent the card. The image is colored with Copics. :) I believe I used: E33, E35, E37, N1, G24, and G28. 

Hope to see you linking up! Think of all the wonderful projects you can make with embossing. :)
