My card features a super cool border and sentiment from one of the upcoming releases, Cyber Café. There are several cups in this fabulous set but I used Kim's Coffee Cup Card Template and my Cameo to create the card base. This is the first card I've made using my Cameo so I am super excited to share this with you. I stamped the leaves and flower from Reflections on the back side of the patterned paper and then trimmed them to create the embellishments. I added some black burlap string and a pearl inside a silver sequin to finish the card.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check back here on Saturday to see if you are the lucky winner of Cyber Café!
