With Enough Caffeine I Could Rule The World……..

I need a couple of cups of java to kick start my morning, but try not to drink coffee late afternoon. I bought theses cute stamps at the December open house at my favourite stamp store, The Butterfly Moon I finally took them out of their packaging.  I thought the background stamp was so versatile as I have other coffee related stamps.
The stamps I used are from House Mouse Designs the banner is made with the Coffee Background stamp and the image is Caffeine High. The sentiment is from Stampin’up. Cardstock Very Vanilla and Early Expresso. buttons from CTMH. I stamped coffee beans with Versamark watermark all over the early expresso.
I used several colouring mediums, prismas colour pencils and alcohol markers.
Another finished inside of a card, it really doesn’t take very much extra time to do it either. You can see the full background stamp. The coffee bean stamp is from Stampabilities and the sentiment is from Inkadinkado by Dawn Houser. 
I saw this sketch and so wanted to try it although my image is not a circle. I am sure this sketch will be used many times, I love it.
I am entering this card in three challenges.
