Retirement Card

Hello! Monday soon over - that's a good thing!
CoffeeLoversBloghopLogoI've made a CAS card with a coffee theme for a man who's going to retire soon.
I was inspired by the layout of this week's card over at The Cutting Edge, but I'm not going to enter it there since I did not use any die cuts.
I printed the digital sentiment from Raindrop Echo Desigs directly onto the card base.
I've used stamps from a set from Lawn fawn. The coffee beans are stamped with brown ink and the coffee cup and steam with black. I stamped onto a scrap piece of DP and brown paper. And that's about it!

I'm linking this card to these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - Beverages/Drink
2) Cuts Crops & Creativity - Coffe Lovers Bloghop
3) Addicted to Stamps and More - #114 CAS
4) Sweet Stampin - Just for men

This one really hit a homerun with me. We are both retired now. At 60, retirement is a wonderful place to be...You are right...it is the longest coffee break...spent with family and best friends...a wonderful coffee break!

Great card, Pia!
