Java Queen and a chance to win!!!

Hello all! Today I am showcasing the Crafty Secrets Scraps. I used the scraps on the recipe box I made a few weeks ago. But, this time I'm really focusing on the scrap instead of what it's adhered to! My Olivia helped pick this image out and we went with it! She hung over my shoulder the entire time that I made this card. Yeah, my back is hurting now! LOL!
The paper is from the Radiance Paper Pad also by Crafty Secrets. The ribbon is from the Offray Outlet that my friends and I went to last month on a scrappy field trip! Elizabeth came along! That was fun! NOT! She was good though. I can't really complain! Anyway, back to the topic! Jeez! Anyway, the scallop punch is from my friend Mandy. She had to downsize, and I asked her if she was getting rid of that one, and she said that she hadn't posted it on eBay yet. So, I snapped it up! For the coffee beans going up the one side w/ the scallops, I colored them in w/ Copics, and then put Crystal Effects over them to give them that shiny-ness that beans sometimes have. Most often I have found that to be the case of regular coffee beans. Decaf beans are flat almost. Not in shape, just shine. Well, espresso beans actually! When I would fill the hoppers in the morning at Starbucks, I could always tell the difference by looking at the beans in the bag.
