Coffee date?

Hi, hope you guys are online frolicking among all the CHA peeks and competitions today:-) I was up until 1 a.m last night doing just that!! ( it's the time difference that's a killer!!)

So I woke up early morning to make this card just before I get to my other activities for the day..

I am submitting this card to the Hero Arts July challenge since its to do with food.. I used their 'Have a Donut' set, I love this set but never gets used as often as I would like.. Time to put an end to that right away!

So here goes..

Today I took the picture outside since my light which I photograph with is broken:-(

Here's the close-up of the window, I stamped the inside of the card with the donuts and the ledger stamp,

As you can see, my Cuttlebug makes a guest appearance on all my new projects these days, here I used it to create a little window and cut out the slightly larger acetate circle that I adhered inside with some glossy accents.. (nothing like a good smear of glossy accents to adhere transparencies and acetate since its hardly noticeable..)
Hero arts stamp: Have a Donut, Ledger Cling stamp
Stampendous sentiment stamp
Distress ink Mustard seed, Wild honey and Barn door also used a bit of Shabby shutters for the card base
Clear embossing powder
Memento Ink in London fog and Tuxedo black
Basic grey Lime rickey paper
Acetate sheet
Permanent marker in black
Thanks for dropping by today:-)
