Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop - May Your Cup Be Full

I've made another card for the Coffee Lovers Summer Blog Hop
So my summer theme for this card is reading along with my cup of coffee -  I love to read year round - but especially out in the yard in a comfy chair getting a little bit of tan (with the sunscreen on, of course!) in the summertime.
So the book toting Miss is cut from an Idea-ology Found Relative card.   The girl is a black and white photo - so I colored her dress, corsage, lips and the book she is holding with Ranger Distress Markers.  I added a sticky pearl necklace (they look like white dots in the photo - but they are little pearls!).  The sentiment is from Literary Caffeine-ations,  the mug is from Sketchy Cups both sets by Stamplorations.
The girl and mug are popped up on foam dots.  I stapled a strip of Idea-ology lace across the bottom.  The floral panel is an Idea-ology Pocket Card, the yellow patterned paper is from Sidewalks paper pad from October Afternoon.
We have until June 24th to link up our summertime coffee cards to the blog hop -  there are TONS of prizes to be won - so be sure to check it out!

I'm also  linking my card to the Frilly and Funkie Challenge - Pastels and Pearls
My found relative's dress is colored with Spun Sugar and she is wearing a pearl necklace!
Stamps:  Literary Caffeine-ations and Sketchy Cups - Stamplorations
Paper:  white, true black - PTI,  DP Sidewalks/October Afternoon.
Ink:  Archival Jet Black
Accessories:  Ranger Distress Markers Barn Door, Spun Sugar, Shabby Shutters, Rusty Hinge, Idea-ology Pocket Cards, Found Relatives, Trimmings Lace,  Mini Attacher - Ranger, foam dots.

What a gorgeous card, Julia! I can think of no better way to spend a lazy summer day than relaxing with a book and a cup of coffee. I'm putting that on my to-do list for my upcoming vacation! I love the pearl necklace you added. It is brilliant. Thank you so much for joining us at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge!
Hugs,
Nancy

Julia, this is such a fun card! I love how you've used the Found relative to incorporate a book into the mix. The added pearls are just such a great touch! I hope you enjoy many books this summer! The only time I read is when I'm on vacation, and then, not much! Hugs!
