Coffee Sanity using Perfect Blend

Perfect Blend is "perfect"!

Although I am not a coffee drinker, I do love the smell and I especially love the look of this stamp set.  It's from the new catalog and it's called "Perfect Blend".  I was trying to get the Starbucks look on my card but Wild Wasabi and Chocolate Chip were not enough, so I added some Soft Sky.
I haven't used the Woodgrain Embossing Folder in a long time so I thought I'd pull it out and use it as the background - it looks like cardboard!  I stamped the sentiment on the Soft Sky and then punched using the new Artisan Label punch (#130920/ $15.95).  I used a piece of CS that was not as wide as the punch, therefore cutting off the top and bottom.  I then layered it on a full punch out of Chocolate Chip.

Do you notice the brads in the top corners of the card?  Those are actually candy dots!  Aren't they just so cool?  They are basically little dots of color with adhesive on the back.  So easy, so simple, yet so pretty!
