Just another Frantic Friday!

(For those who notice, yes-I posted on the wrong date.  Oh well, early is better than late!  LOL)
It's Friday again and here I am,  posting my card for Fresh Brewed Designs.  This is going up as a pre-scheduled post through blogger (crossing my fingers that it works this week) since I have to work an extra 12 in the ER today.  (How exciting for me - read sarcasm here!  LOL)
Anyway, the image I used on my card here is one of my favorite from Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs.  She has an amazing assortment of digital images and rubber stamps.  Lots of them directly related to caffeine, like this one!
This card is posted on The Latte Lounge for a challenge.  Isn't is wonderful!
It is called 'Fresh Brewed Flowers' and you can find it here.
I printed and coloried the image several times, cut the flower box and the coffee blooms
out.  Using dimensionals, put on the flower box and flowers at a raised level.

I scored some white cardstock and rubbed it with my memento cocoa ink pad for the house siding. 
I colored everything with copic markers. 
Then, I added some stickles to the dots on the curtains and on the window box.
The ribbon is from Michaels.  I pleated it and then cut the sentiment out using a Spellbinder and
again used dimensionals to raise it also.
Whole thing was attached to a teal colored card and it's ready to go!
Go visit the FBD challenge blog and check out whats happening now.
