Seize the Birthday - Coffee or Tea

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday.  It is time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday and this week our "Toppings" option is COFFEE or TEA.  You can always create an "Anything Goes" birthday card as well.

I used distress oxides to create the rainbow background.  Keeping the cup and steam images in black and white really make them pop off the background.  

Be sure to check out all the great cards by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will join us!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!

A list of supplies I used can be found below, just click on the picture below to be taken to where you can get the product.  I do use some affiliate links when I can, this means I will get a small commission if you choose to purchase the product using my link-this is at no cost to you and helps with the running of my blog.  I really appreciate your love and support!
