Latte love - coffee card !

Hello guys !
Im back with another card that i made for the BGC blog! 
we are playing a coffee inspired challenge with some stitching !
Loved playing along :) it was superb ! 

Here is my card !
 I came up with this card with absolutely no ideas in mind 
when i heard about this challenge i was brimming with ideas but then i lost my mojo :( and i just wasnt happy with what i was making. 
But finally managed to brew this one somehow. 
Does it ever happen to you too ? losing mojo and getting all lazy , bored and depressed :/ 
Gaah hate such times. 

 I picked up some new My minds eye papers ! They are amazing ! 
love the colors and patterns they have 
its very fresh and sweet !
I have played with a few dies here mainly circles and scallops :) 

Since we had to include stitching into the coffee theme , i went and did some ribbon work on the scalloped circle. Also added some hand stitches on the heart of the coffee cup , and i realized i was out of practice , and its not very flattering :( 
so i just left it at that , i had initially decided to fully fill the heart with hand embroidery . 
After which i added some faux stitching too.
This card  was pretty simple to make :) i think i was done in about 30 mins . I took a while to tie my bow , and pick out the papers, rest was just fine. 
I haven't crafted in a few days and im hoping my mojo comes back soon.
Have a major event for which i need to prepare . 

Hugs to everyone
