Mojo Monday: Coffee and Friends

Hi Everyone!

I am so thankful that I brought my Nook and keyboard to my son's doctor appointment today since they are running 2 hours behind!! I mean, ridiculous is that?!
Well, at least I can be productive and blog a little. This is my card for yesterday's Mojo Monday sketch. This sketch was super fun to play with because it was easy and worked well with pattern papers. I could definitely see myself using it again. Oh and hopefully you can tell that the picture quality has improved a bit too. I finally found a place with some decent lighting and a good "on the go" photo editing app. I think the results turned out rather well, if I do say so myself!
I added lots of distressing and inking to the edges of the panels in hopes to make it warmer and inviting which is the feel I was going for especially considering that I will be giving this card to a friend along with some coffee and some chocolates.
I also found some fun challenges for this card:

1. Anything Goes Challenge: Anything goes (optional Coffee Break theme)

3 Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
4. Top Tip Tuesday: Embossing
5. Crafty Cardmakers : 1 image, 2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments
6. Mojo Monday: Sketch
7. The Pink Elephant Challenge: texture

That is all for me today! Thank you so much for visiting with me! Until next time....

Paper: Dark Chocolate, Terracotta Tile, Aqua Mist (Papertrey Ink)

Love your colour scheme, and the embossed paper works really well with the design and the pattern on the top layer.

Oh my take the cake for BFF's! Chocolate and coffee....I'm in heaven. :) Your card is fantabulous and I love the patterned papers for the MM sketch too, but I really have to admit, the embossing REALLY kicks it up a notch. That looks incredible!

Thank you so much for playing along with us at Top Tip Tuesday and sharing your talents with us!
