Coffee Lovers Spring Bloghop

I'm excited to be participating in the Coffee Lovers Spring Bloghop today - I used spring colors on my coffee cup and on the patterned paper.
The cup was cut out of watercolor paper using MFT Coffee Cup Die.  I inked them using Loll Thompson's Splash Water Color Background technique using Ranger Distress Inks Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Brushed Corduroy, my craft mat and water mister.
This fun sentiment is from Becca Crueger's set designed for Stamplorations called Literary Caffeine-ations.  I stamped it on a piece of Vintage Cream cardstock cut with Storybook 1 die from Pretty Pink Posh.
The coffee cup and sentiment panel are popped up on foam dots.
There are TONS of prizes to be won chosen by Random.org - You'll find the Coffee Lovers Spring bloghop details and link for your creation here.
 
I'm also linking my card to:
