Miss You a Latte

One of my buddies is having a birthday any day now.  She's a coffee lover and there's almost always a cup on her desk so I picked this image to make a card for her.  She's one of the "a la Modes" from My Favorite Things". 

Every now and then Kim (the owner of  MFT) likes to do something to shake things up.  This week she's announced that the  Wednesday Stamp Club challenge is going to be a sketch every week.  We get to pick our papers, our stamps and our themes.  The idea is to make it easier for people to play along.  So go get inky and make a card or project using this sketch.

The banner dies have been out on my desk since last week so I decided to use them on the bottom of the card for the sentiment.  I also had the "layered labels" dies out so I used them for the sentiment on the inside of the card.  I used the "Jumbo Scallop" die for the top of the card. 
The inside is finished off with some more of the dp and a sentiment.

Here's the deets:
stamps:  My Favorite Things a La Modes "Miss You a Latte" image and inside sentiment; MFT "Bling Bet" for the "u"; and MFT alphabet for the banner sentiment
ink:  Memento "Tuxedo Black" for image and inside sentiment; Stampin' Up "Green Galore" for banner sentiment and "u"
paper - Basic Grey "Wisteria" collection''; Recollections grey cs; scrap of DCWV cs for "u"
miscellaneous - MFT hot fix crystals; MFT "Banner", "Jumbo Scallop" and "Layered Labels" die-namics; nestibilities "Label 10"; white felt; cup charm;

Here's the challenges:
My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club MFTWSC1 - sketch
Cute Card Thursday #146 - Out with the Old! (the Wisteria paper and the bling are old)
Fab 'N Funky #54 - Anything Goes
Stampin' B  #92 Use an old favorite and something brand spanking new, the paper and banner die are old favorites and the stamp is brand spanking new for me
