Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop - Monochromatic Latte

Wishing everyone a blessed Sunday!  It's a beautiful warm sunny day here in New England with a little breeze to keep it comfortable!  I finally had a chance to make a coffee card for the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
I had the perfect Latte Stencil that I recently won from Stamplorations to use on my card today.
I sponged the stencil using 3 different Ranger Distress Inks - starting out with Antique Linen at the top of the steam, then using Old Paper on the bottom of the steam and the top of the mug and finally Frayed Burlap at the bottom of the mug (with the same progression on the LATTE) -  making it monochromatic!  To finish it off I scattered some sequins around the card. I layered the Rustic Cream stenciled panel to a Fine Linen panel and then to the Rustic Cream card base.  All cardstock from Papertrey Ink.

I'm also linking my card to Virginia's View Challenge - Ombre/Monochromatic.
Also linking to Stamplorations Anything Goes Challenge - my stencil is from Stamplorations
