STAMPlorations October Theme & Photo Prompt Challenge!

Good morning and welcome crafty friends! Can you believe we've made it thru to
October?! It seemed like February thru May dragged on for a whole year, then when June showed up, 
whoosh! The months started flying by! 
Well, now that the summer is just about over, the 
is starting up again. Yay! 
Above is your inspiration for the month of October, and here is the
card I created:

I started by creating a panel of kraft card stock and using the Mosaic Slimline Stencil
with a few Distress Inks. Over that I splattered some black ink spray.
Putting that aside to dry, I die cut the Zen Coffee Cup Layering dies, the solid in
dark brown card stock, and the detail in metallic gold. The sentiment is one from
the Literary Caffeine-ations stamp set. Once I adhered the panel to the kraft card base, I wrapped some rust floss around it, 
then adhered the coffee mug and sentiment with foam squares.

I hope that you'll play along this month! We'd love to see 
your take on the theme & photo prompt.

I love it. That card is fantastic. I wish I saw this post an hour earlier. Just placed my first order and would definitely have done it through you! Oh and I ordered that coffee cup too ;)

Great slimline design! I really like the background panel stencilled on kraft, too.

Chris, I love this! I cannot remember when I last made a slimline card but I might just have to give it a go ... you have inspired me to try!
