Coffee Polka

This card was made for the SCS sketch challenge and the Color Throwdown challenge. Last night as I was going trying to go to sleep my brain was going a million miles an hour. I just couldn't go to sleep and the idea of making a card by sewing on the big circles and also by making a panel by sewing on the strips of paper, and couldn't wait to make a card. I love how everything came out except I am not sure about the main image, I am not sure that it matches the rest of
the card, but didn't know what else to do so decided to leave it like it is. For the larger circles I used the 1 3/8 circle punch from SU and did some faux stitching. The strips were cut and stitched on using my sewing machine. THe smaller circles were made using the smallest circle from the circle nesties and faux stitched around those also. I cuttlebugged the small front panel using the swiss dots folder and stamped the cup from Coffee with Friends and cut it out and decorated it using rubons and rhinestones. Added the ribbon and some dangly charms. TFL!
