A Latte Party -Fresh Brewed Designs Choose Your Challenge using Photo/Sketch Insiration

It's that time again!!! 

 Fresh Brewed Design's month long "Choose Your Challenge-Sketch/Photo Inspiration"...

It's a GLORIOUS late Spring morning (I'm dreaming here) are beginning to bloom...birds line the hydro wires...on the back deck is a fragrantly steaming latte...
So obviously I am using the photo for inspiration...LOL!!!  This photo for me just screamed "Spring morning on the deck"!!!

And here are my musings...

please click on the first image for a full screen closer view...

I have used Heather's super SWEET "Latte Party"....
you can find this at the shop at Fresh Brewed Designs in the Coffee section...just like the grocery store LOL!!!...
I used a trellis die creeping along them...
I had to fudge a bit on the colour cause try as I did... this paper just wouldn't go back on the shelf...I just kept thinking..."!!"....
I made the balloons that are in the left hand side by hand...
sentiments are all computer generated...
and of course I had to dust everything with Frantage...

 a closer view of the digi image ...
 here you can see the birdies' curiosity at just what that lovely smelling brew is on the deck... 
 and the inside is simply an invite to join me for a "Latte Party!!"...

  1. Oh how I wish it was spring too! But the only good thing is we get to craft away here without any regrets that we should be outside!LOL
    I love your card today. The teal is such a nice spring colour to use and the scalloped oval die in brown is a perfect match with the teal. Thank-you for bringing a little spring to us!
    Have a great day.

  2. OK ... now how CUTE is this?!?! I think we should ALL throw a Latte Party! WOOT WOOT!!! I would SO be there! ;) LOVE LOVE LOVE the curious birdies sitting here eyeing the cuppa joe and sweet cupcake. Or I am thinking the balloons swaying in the breeze is the only thing keeping these treats safe.
    Beautiful layers and I LOOOVE the trellis / flowers up the side. This card is just so fun! Thank you for the inspiration and smile!
