Caffeine Problem?

 I had a challenge for a green card- so went to work with distress inks.


 I used an emboss resist technique- using the embossing first before applying the distress ink               ( Mowed Ink) , as you can see.  I added green highlights to the coffee cup, the added brown for the 'coffee' in the cup.  I had a scrap of burlap sitting on my desk, so used it under the cup. I thought brown shades of sequins would be perfect : )
  The image is Michael Strong Stamps, the sentiment is The Paper Company.

Challenges:
