Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Today I'm excited to be participating in the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop -  you'll find all the Hop Information at the Coffee loving card makers Blog.
I decided to make a tag that I can use when I'm gifting some coffee or even a Gift Card to Dunkins or Starbucks to someone.  And I used a brandy new cup die from Tim Holtz called Fresh Brewed
I first dabbed the manilla tag with Tattered Rose Distress Stain - then I used Picket Fence Distress Paint with Tim's Splatters Stencil - and finally sponged Tim's Lattice Work stencil with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.  I die cut the cup out of white card stock then embossed the pieces  with Frantage Shabby Pink and Shabby White embossing powders and layered the pieces with foam dots.    
The Thanks a Latte is from the set Coffee Keeper from Art Impressions.  I stapled a piece of Idea-ology Film Strip Ribbon to the side adding words using made from Idea-ology Label Letters.  To finish it off I scattered Metallic Sequins around the tag and looped a piece of pink wrinkled seam tape through the hole.

I'm also linking my tag to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - Think Pink.
