Just Wanted to Espresso my Thanks

Here's my card for this month's Reverse Confetti color challenge.  I used the challenge colors--navy, orange, and gray--to make a thank you card using the new Be a Barista set.  I loved Angelica's designs at Market Street Stamps and I'm so glad to see she's doing some illustrating for Reverse Confetti!

Just Wanted to Espresso my Thanks-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps from Reverse Confetti
I used the mug image along with one of the fancy latte fillers as my focal image.  It's colored with Spectrum Noir markers, with the exception of the filler image--that's stamped with brown pigment ink.

I combined a trio of papers in the challenge colors to create the backdrop for the mug.  For interest, I mixed in a dotted pattern among the solid papers.  The dotted panel is wrapped with some twine to add a little texture.  After I added the cut out mug with dimensional dots, I stamped the thank you sentiment on the panel using navy ink.  A trio of orange enamel dots brings in a little more color around the mug.  The finished panel is attached to a navy card base.
