Patio Drinks

This card was made with the digi image from My Favorite Stamps.  The image is called Meet me at the Cafe.  I colored the image with copics.  I actually made this card a while back when I was newer to coloring but I still like how it turned out.  The buttons are from my stash.  The leaves are Martha Stewart punches.  I added some clouds to the background, but they seem rather light in this picture so hopefully you can see them.  The brown background paper was embossed with an embossing folder I made my very own self.  The embossing isn't as distinctive as store bought, however, it was fun to make and now I have a leaf embossing folder.  There is also some faux stitching around the page and some bling cause I LOVE bling!

Here is what my embossing folder looks like.  I used cardboard from the back of paper backs for the main part.  Then I used my punches with the cardboard to create the look I wanted.  This was NOT easy.  The punches were hard to punch out. However, I love it!

Hope you enjoyed today's card!!!
