World's best birthday wishes

I've been enjoying the CASEing DT series at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog, but was really stumped as to how to CASE this month's gorgeous card from Becca Cruger:


Here is my attempt:

My card started with the focal image from From the Heart Stamps' World's Best Coffee. And then it was one substitute after another due to my apparent lack of supplies, which amazes me because my stash is more mountain than molehill, or so I thought.
  • I wanted to use one of the accompanying digi sentiments, but ran out of large-enough pieces of vellum that would feed through the printer. Therefore, I stamped a sentiment from Verve's Surely Goodness
  • The circle embossing is in place of the small doily (which I didn't have)
  • The swipes of alcohol marker are in place of the mixed media / gelato-like gorgeousness on the original card
On the bright side, I was able to print a miniature coffee cup on the envelope! Eeeep! Super cute; all's well that ends well.

I am submitting this to:

Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 which tells us, "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love." Have an awesome week.
