Caffeine for the Night Shift

One more quick card for the "Night" challenge at CASology, 
using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch, and the 
colors from Embellish Magazine.  
The additional requirement for this challenge is to
use paint.  I used Mr. Huey's color mists for the background on the 
Layerz Mat Stack yet still  kept it CAS.
What you ask, does coffee have to do with "Night"?  
Well everything if you have to work the night shift.
Thankfully, I don't have to the work the night shift anymore.
But when I did, caffeine really helped my stay alert ~
especially between three and six ;).


Supplies ~ 
Stamps:  PTI Heart-2-Heart # 1, Fiskars Latte Love
Paper:  PTI Soft Stone, SU Very Vanilla
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black,  SU Gumball Green & Crumb Cake
Dies:  PTI  Heart-2-Heart # 1, Mat Stack # 1 & Layerz Mat Stack # 1
Additional Supplies:  Taylored Expressions Circles Impression Plate, Mr. Huey's Color Mists Clay & Estate Green

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  9. I love your coffee card - such a great background! Caffeine really helps those on day shifts too:) Hugs x x

  10. I don't drink coffee but I would think the night shift and coffee go together perfectly. No more than I sleep, I could probably take on a night shift. LOL

    Cute card and a clever idea for your 'night' card.
