Let's Meet for Coffee

I have been loving my white cardstock lately, have you noticed? Seems several of my recent cards have shown a lot of white. I'm liking the look.

I made this one for Barb's (barbaralynn on SCS) Caffeine card swap.

My first idea was to color the image - of course (I love to color!) but the sample I did with the image colored was not nearly as attractive, in my opinion. The colored image seemed to overwhelm the CAS look of the card and the subtle details of the coffee ring/stain, etc. So minimalistic was the best option.

As you can see, I repeated the coffee ring/stain inside my card...

I sure hope Barb likes my card!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Oohhh I want to meet you for Coffee!! I'll bring my 'Bux! :) This is gorgeous, I love your idea of leaving it 'as is' and not coloring it in - gives your card so much more dimension and detail to the image! Diggin' that coffee ring! I'm on my 2nd cup ... cheers!
