Happily Caffeinated for Colour Me Challenge

Happy 2015!  A new year of creations.  The sentiment on this card may be my New Year's resolution.  Are you happily caffeinated?  

This week's Colour Me Challenge was to use a past challenge from the year.  I decided to go with a challenge from early in the year - Colour Me Challenge #19 - as it was from before I had found this challenge.  Cherry Cobbler is also one of my favorite inks.  Here is my card using Cherry Cobbler ink and ribbon, along with some neutrals.

That cup image makes me want some coffee . . . right now!  I stamped the cup in Versamark and used Cherry Cobbler embossing powder.  The steam ended up a bit darker than I anticipated, as I used Iridescent Ice embossing powder which looks dark on the cardstock.  If I were to make this card again, I would probably use white pigment ink in place of Versamark (Note to self!). 

First card of 2015 . . . I think I will take the advice of the card!
