TIOT45 - Coffee Break!

(click the photo to enlarge!)

Welcome to this week's Try it out Tuesday from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! This week our challenge is to BUTTON UP, use buttons on your project -- keyword: TIOT45!

I decided to combine this with this week's Copic Colour Challenge 40 - see below for the colors. Just perfect for this new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD image, Latte. Love it! I can just picture, springtime at a little cafe somewhere nice...like Italy. Wishful thinking? Hey, go big or go home!

The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers of course. My buttons are from Basic Grey, as is the patterned paper. Unfortunately I don't have any of the AWESOME new glitter buttons from American Crafts that Susana is now stocking, so I had to make do with some Glitter Dots for extra "umph". {Not that I don't still love my Glitter Dots, but have you SEEN the American Crafts buttons??}. The ribbon and pink spiral clip are from my stash.

I hope you are inspired to grab your buttons and play along with us this week! I can always go for some well-placed buttons; and they have been neglected in my stamp room lately. So thanks to Suzanne for the challenge! That's it for me today, I'll see you tomorrow though, thanks for stopping by!
