" You've Got Style"

"Oh Beans" is our feature today!  I was working on the card and decided to make a tag to with it when I was struck with an "aha" moment!  I realized that if I bought some coffee I could make a cute set for my SIL!
So here is my take on "Oh Beans"

For the card I stamped first on yellow DP then I stamped a second time on the DP and cut three cups out and paper pieced them.  I made a little sleeve for around the coffee to attach the tag too.  I randomly stamped beans on a 3 in. wide strip of card stock and punched out a lacey border.
I think the tag turned out so cute!!!  I cut some of the flowers out of the DP I used in the card and attached them randomly to the cup.  A couple of flourish pieces cut from a large flourish works well for steam!

The inside of the card holds a bit of money so that she can go to her favorite coffee shop!

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day!

Supplies: Stamp: MFP a HC - Oh Beans.  Paper: MME - Rosy, SU! Crumb Cake, MFT Nightshift Blue. Acces: MS Lace Border punch, MFT Die-namics: Medium Fancy Flourish, GC Pocket.
