A cup of coffee shared with a friend ...

... is happiness tasted & time well spent.

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 124:anything goes with a twist ... beverage tea/coffee. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of others in the team and join in with the challenge.

The lovely coffee image is from Dazzling Ace Designs, kindly given as sponsor of the challenge. Papers and ribbons are from Papermania Persimmon collection, using up offcuts.

My card is based (my loose interpretation) on the sketch for Atlantic hearts 153:
