Paper Smooches SPARKS October Designer Drafts challenge

Hello, friends:}

Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The second week of the month is always a DESIGNER DRAFT challenge. 

This week we are inspired by the following sketch:
Well.... this might be a first (again!)!! I think I broke my trend of 90% following the sketch! I think this one is about 99%!!!!! I'm kind of blown away! LOL! 

I created this card for my friend, Alicia-- she works at Starbucks and loves coffee, tea, and random drinks like that (no joke- she has a cup in her hand ALWAYS)... and today is her birthday! HAPPPPPPPY birthday, Alicia!!! **NOTE: I'm not even sure that this sentiment is appropriate for a birthday or a tea lover... but I liked it and it fit the card:) 

PSSOctDD5This was a fairly simple card- it came together nicely! I used some Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic papers with only 2  Paper Smooches stamp sets! 2!!!!!!!!! I know- another shocker! LOL! I used PS Cyber Cafe for everything on the front and then... get ready... another shocker.... I stamped on the inside using a sentiment from the PS Digits set! **I'm full of craziness and shocks today! LOL!  Love how this turned out- super fun and fresh! Perfect for Alicia:) Just hope she likes it! 
That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs, get inspired, and leave them some love
