Thanks a Latte Pocket Card

I had the card at the very bottom created quite awhile ago and when I saw this color challenge I thought this would be perfect to alter and add in some purple.  The only problem was I couldn't find the card anywhere.  This week's blogger's challenge was to use the following colors using any type of shade you wish:

So back to the drawing board I went and re-created my card that I had originally submitted to the Go-To Sketches using sketch #17.  It didn't get picked up but I'm thrilled to say one of my others did and it's in the current issue of Card Ideas for Paper Crafters (formerly the Go-To Sketches) that is available on the shelves now.

Card details:
Cardstock: Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and VIP Purple
Inks: Same as Cardstock
Embellishments: SU ribbon, circle punch, mini rhinestones, Janome Sewing and slot punch

Here is my original card that I crated:

Card details:
Cardstock: Ocean Tides, Dark Chocolate, Rustic White and Kraft from Papertrey Ink
Inks: Ocean Tides from Papertrey Ink, Dish All the Dirt Brown from Clear & Simple Stamps
Accessories: Stapler, Janome sewing, Dish All the Dirt Brown Ribbon from Clear & Simple Stamps, Circle punch

I love BOTH versions, and what a great idea! I'm a huge coffee fan and having a spot on the front for the gift card is a wonderful idea! Congrats on being published again too!
