STAMPlorations and the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Welcome crafty peeps! I'm participating (for the first time) in the
Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop which starts today on the

STAMPlorations is a super sponsor for the hop, and I've made my card
using the awesome Coffee Donut Row stamp, colored with Spectrum Noir markers,
and the Thanks a Latte Phrase CUTplorations die. I cut that from some
holographic paper, in keeping with the rainbow of to-go coffee cups! It's
much more vibrant IRL. (Holographic paper is really hard to photograph!) 

 and the inside:

On the inside, I used a sentiment from the Fond Expressions stamp set
